GLENN: We have the Richard Blumenthal thing, and this is why I'm not talking much about the elections today. I'm going to leave that to Bret Baier and Sean Hannity on television and Rush Limbaugh on radio. I'm not talking much about it because I see some of the candidates that are out there and I don't think Richard Blumenthal's going to help us too much. How about you?
PAT: I don't think so.
PAT: This is what he said a couple of days ago, of course.
BLUMENTHAL: We have learned something very important since the days that I served in Vietnam.
PAT: Okay. We learned
GLENN: Wait a minute. Play it again.
PAT: You want to make sure of what he said?
PAT: Okay. Here it is.
BLUMENTHAL: We have learned something very important since the days that I've served in Vietnam.
GLENN: Since the days I've served in Vietnam.
PAT: In Vietnam. Okay.
GLENN: Now, the problem is he didn't — he received five deferments. So he didn't serve in Vietnam. Here's what he said yesterday surrounded by a bunch of people dressed in VFW outfits.
BLUMENTHAL: Now, on a few occasions I have misspoken about my service.
PAT: I knew it.
GLENN: Okay, hang on just a second. Hang on just a second.
GLENN: On a few occasions.
GLENN: Not just once.
PAT: You know that's because he's done it before.
STU: Oh, they have video, yeah, they have tape of other times.
GLENN: On a few occasions. I can understand misspeaking —
PAT: And then you'd be careful. If somebody would have said, hey, did you say "In"? Didn't you serve "During"?
PAT: Do we need to send you to preposition cool?
GLENN: Well, no, he's only the attorney general. So legalese.
GLENN: Okay. So on a few occasions I misspoke. That's a pretty big misstatement, but go ahead.
BLUMENTHAL: And I take full responsibility.
GLENN: Stop. For what? For misspeaking?
PAT: Yeah, you don't need to take responsibility if you misspoke, right?
GLENN: You don't need to take responsibility.
PAT: I'm sorry; I misspoke.
STU: Who else is going to take responsibility for you misspeaking? Is there another option other than you?
PAT: If I say crap instead of crumb, I'm going to say, crap, I misspoke. I'm not going to apologize for it.
STU: If you say crumb, I misspoke, then it would really be bad.
GLENN: Right. It would be really bad because then you would have to apologize because you did it twice.
PAT: And then I misspoke twice.
BLUMENTHAL: And I will not allow.
PAT: Oh, he won't allow.
GLENN: Okay, stop, stop, stop, stop. He's getting applause. I misspoke on several occasions.
PAT: Yea! (Applause)
GLENN: There's a brave politician!
BLUMENTHAL: Anyone can take a few misplaced words and impugn my record of service.
PAT: No impugning, yeah!
GLENN: Dirt bag politician for president! Dirt bag politician for president!
BLUMENTHAL: And I am proud of it.
PAT: He's proud. Well, I'm proud of him for being proud of it.
GLENN: I'm proud of him for being brave enough to say that he misspoke on several occasions.
PAT: You are not as proud of him as I'm proud that he was also proud that he served in the Reserves but just misspoke about his service.
GLENN: Well, I am not as proud as you are on that.
GLENN: But you can't compare my pride to your pride on how proud I am of him not letting people impugn those five deferments.
STU: See, I'm mostly proud about the fact that he's proud now only that he's discovered he's proud about being proud after the fact.
STU: When he was proud that he's caught. Not that he was proud earlier when he realized it but now that he's caught, he's proud.
PAT: But how proud are you that he's proud of those who actually did serve in their pride in serving in Vietnam even though he's proud of not having served in Vietnam but rather during Vietnam.
GLENN: That is fantastic.
PAT: I'm proud that he doesn't know his prepositions.
GLENN: Can I tell you something? Can I tell you something? Whatever happened? I am so, here's — let me boil it down. I am proud to be a part of a group called media that is so proud of their service to our country to make sure to point out that George Bush never flew in Vietnam.
GLENN: Never flew anywhere. Was just in the National Guard, you know, actually doing stuff in the National Guard.
PAT: Oh, and he was awful.
GLENN: Oh, he was awful and they went and they investigated and they got those Dan Rather actually was willing to lose his job over it because it was that important.
PAT: How proud were you of Dan? I was so proud. I was proud of Dan.
GLENN: I was proud of Dan.
PAT: Proud of the media.
GLENN: And now I am so proud that they don't give a rat's ass about this guy. That's what I am really —
GLENN: Yeah! More dirtbags in Washington.
