John Edwards: Rhetoric, Flatulence Not Enough; WSJ: Copyediting, Proofreading Not Enough


From the Cato Institute's David Boaz comes this hat tip about an anti-Barack Obama debate point made many moons ago by presidential sweepstakes loser John Edwards:

"Rhetoric is not enough. High flatulent language is not enough," says Edwards from a debate appearance.

Read that, from a Wall Street Journal blog, here.

Sadly, and like too many really great stories, this one is simply wrong. In the video clip the Journal embeds right there, Edwards plainly says "high falutin.'"

And that's your Thursday morning comedown.
