Ted Cruz claims that he lobbied John McCain to allow the military to carry guns while on base.

John McCain says that Ted Cruz is playing with his imaginary friends again.McCain claims it never happened.

“You know, I was fascinated to hear that because I haven’t heard a thing about it from him. Nor has my staff heard from his staff,” a jovial McCain told reporters late Monday. “Where did that come from? I have not a clue.”

Uh oh.So the next day, Ted says he had “misspoken and later formally sent a letter to McCain asking the chairman to look into the topic.”

Misspoken. Yes, misspoken is a new word for lied my butt off to try to make myself look relevant.
