Rep. Blunt caught lying about Canadian hips

Missouri Congressman Roy Blunt left his wife in order to mount a tobacco lobbyist, so it’s understandable he’d be concerned about keeping his thrusters in working order.

But this is bad form, even for a Beltway cocksman.

A newspaper has corrected a lie Blunt is peddling as he criticizes efforts to reform health care. In a meeting last week with the editorial board of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Blunt said 59-year-old silver foxes like himself were too old to get new hips in Canada or Britain, bastions of socialized medicine.

Not true.
