Not literally, of course. But Connecticut's Democratic Senate candidate Richard Blumenthal, whose misstatements/embellishments/lies about serving in Vietnam have already cost him dearly in the polls, probably didn't need a self-described "good friend" like former Republican congressman Christopher Shays to blab about his concerns to the Times. "I felt inclined to go to him and say, ‘Dick, in your service in Vietnam, you weren’t on the firing line, you don’t want to overstate that,’" Shays tells the paper that broke the story. Thanks, pal!
