New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson makes light of his false claim to have been drafted by the Kansas City A’s years ago to Time Magainze:
LAST MONTH YOU ANNOUNCED THAT, AFTER RESEARCHING THE MATTER, YOU DETERMINED THAT THE KANSAS CITY ATHLETICS HAD NEVER DRAFTED YOU. HOW COULD YOU MISREMEMBER THAT DETAIL FOR FOUR DECADES? I had been told by various scouts that I would be drafted if I signed. When it appeared in the official program of my team that I had been drafted, I assumed it was correct. However, the mistake was mine. I should have checked. Obviously, it’s become a little bit of an instance where I dropped the ball. Get it, Karen?
I GET IT. I GET IT. Get that? Dropped the ball?
Casual with the truth for years. Hilarious.
