"Senator von Munchausen" Kerry
But who knows if that's really true or not. At this point I just can't be bothered running down every unsubstantiated claim Senator von Munchausen makes. I've got more important things to do with my time, like trying to invent a carburetor that gets 200 miles to the gallon.
My ironclad policy is this: when, towards the end of the evening, the pompous drunk on the next barstool turns to you and claims to have dated Morgan Fairchild, as both Senator Kerry and Jon Lovitz's Saturday Night Live character Tommy Flanagan the Compulsive Liar have done, you just shrug your shoulders, say, "Yeah, that's the ticket," and turn away.
