Let me see if I can manage the right level of umbrage about this. On the one hand, do they have so little to do over at the Pope Empire that they have to make up a story about me? On the other hand, though, they are calling me a liar because of this post from last week.

If I had more time, I’d make a little video of me flicking this off my shoulder, Obama-style. (Loved that, by the way.) As I’m in a bit of a hurry, I’ll just note that my piece was about what I did after I was turned away from the Civitas meeting and left the hotel. I didn’t re-enter the Doubletree. The statement that I somehow attempted to surreptitiously enter the Civitas meeting later is fiction.

Nothing else in the Civitas piece is a difference of fact, so I’ll just leave it there.
