Seawater can’t put out pants fires.
Two days after emphatically denying that Secretary of State John Kerry was anywhere near a boat off of Nantucket:
State dept issues stmt disputing our report that we saw John Kerry on a boat in Nantucket today. Says he has been working "all day" on Egypt—

State Department spokestool Jen Psaki has amended her earlier story:
“Briefly on his boat.”
