Congressman Dennis Kucinich used this same excuse in a reply to my question to him regarding this.

I think Meg posted this is chat, and wanted to save it because it was so amusing. I am making a new category in my blog, so it doesn't become a mess, and will place this under video humor, or similar category as comes to mind!

It feels like we live in a complicated world, doesn't it? Knowledge is increasing at such a pace that no one can keep up with whatever the new reality may be.
