image for Sound Bite Distortions

Washington DC, July 17, 2008: Presidential candidates Senator Barack Obama and Senator John McCain agreed today to challenge any quoted sound bite distortions and half truths employed by the media, during the rest of the campaign.

Both candidates cited statements taken way out of context during this political campaign and other events. Here are some examples, with the actual statement in bold:

"I wanna cut his (Barack Obama's) nuts out." I wanna cut his (Barack Obama's) nuts out, because he is allergic to peanut butter and could get very sick!

"cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them" cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them, because they haven't the money to take Bahamas' vacations during a political campaign like me.

"Mission Accomplished." Mission Accomplished, maybe, hey who wrote this?

"I voted yes before I voted no." I voted yes before I voted no, darn these infernal Senate electronic voting gadgets!

"I invented the Internet." I invented the Automat.

"I never had sex with that woman." I never had sex with that woman, unless Hillary was away or Jenifer Flowers was out of town.

"Watch my lips, no new taxes." Watch my lips, no new taxes, unless the US government is three Trillion dollars in debt!

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
