U.S.: Phony cuss!

This from Best of the Web Today.

Cussing Out of Both Sides of His Mouth
From an article on John Kerry's childhood in yesterday's Boston Herald:
Sent by his American parents to a posh Swiss boarding school in the foothills of the Alps, an 11-year-old John F. Kerry did what most any other kid would do--he learned to curse in Italian.

"Spaccare la faccia, porco," Cam Kerry remembered his older brother saying, a phrase which, loosely translated, means "Shove it in your face, pig."
But as we noted earlier this month, Kerry claimed on July 3 that he had learned "my first cuss word sitting on a tractor"--at age 12. Both of these stories can't be true. Of course, it doesn't really matter when Kerry learned to cuss; the important thing is that he has a %#!@ credibility gap.
