Is it a lie, or simply a mistake? Depends on who the quote is by...

Stephen Spruiell at the NRO Media Blog reports on something I caught on TV that almost caused me to spittake my nice frosty Yazoo Onward Stout. Rep. Maurice Hinchey, trying to pitch impeachment related to the WMDs in Iraq, states that the President lied in his speech that was quoted by Sean Hannity. Only problem... the speech quoted by Hannity was by John F. Kerry. Back pedalling insued, with the quote conveyed by Hinchey as a "mistake" instead of a "lie" once it was Kerry's quote instead of Bush's. Hannity is the king of this set-up, but it makes me laugh every time.
