THE DAVID ST. HUBBINS AWARD FOR READING COMPREHENSION

Bush earlier this month accused Castro of welcoming sex tourism to bolster his failing economy and contributing to a global problem of human trafficking. Speaking to Florida law enforcement officials on July 16, Bush claimed the Cuban leader shamelessly promotes sex tourism. "The dictator welcomes sex tourism. Here's how he bragged about the industry," said Bush. "This is his quote --'Cuba has the cleanest and most educated prostitutes in the world' and 'sex tourism is a vital source of hard currency.'" Three days after Bush's remarks, the Los Angeles Times reported that the White House found the comments in a Dartmouth undergraduate paper posted on the Internet and lifted them out of context. "It shows they didn't read much of the article," commented Charlie Trumbull, the author. --MSNBC

I imagine it's hard to keep track of what's fact and what isn't when you spend so much time twisting the truth. The fact that Castro never said anything even remotely close to what Bush said is irrelevant to me. I think having the cleanest and most educated prostitutes in the world is indeed something to brag about. Maybe the issue is that Texas has the dirtiest and most ignorant prostitutes in the world.
