Blumenthal Clarifies: Was Veterinarian, Not Veteran

HARTFORD, CT (The Borowitz Report) -- Acknowledging that he "misspoke" about his military service, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal today attempted to clarify matters.

"I meant to say that I was a veterinarian, not a veteran," he said in a press conference in Hartford.

"I left off the last three syllables to conserve time, so I could go back to work for the people of Connecticut," he added.

As to his statement that he had served in Vietnam, Mr. Blumenthal said, "What I meant to say was I was a server at Vie et Nomme, a French restaurant in Greenwich." More here.
