Tendency to Shade the Truth

NYT has a great headline for its article about Mitt Romney's habit of saying self-serving things that are not true: 
The whole article reads like someone went through and replaced instances of "inaccurate" and "false" with "imprecise."
George Washington said, "I cannot tend to imprecision.  I chopped down the cherry tree."
In other news, I just got back from a lifetime of hunting with my good buddy, MLK.  We shot a fish this big.

Escape from New Jersey
