Tell me lies...

"Before I was born, a man named Sir Edmund Hillary became famous for being the first person to climb Mount Everest. My father named me after him as a symbolic message that I could achieve anything I wanted in life... that I could climb ANY mountain..."

-Hillary Clinton explains in 1996 how she got her name

Never mind that she was born five years before Edmund Hillary scaled Everest. The year she was born, he was an unknown beekeeper.

How petty and pathetic it is to lie about something so stupid, and stupid to lie about something so easy to check. Why would anyone bother?
