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:

State Dept issues correction, acknowledges original @CBSThisMorning report that Kerry was aboard his boat "briefly" in Nantucket Weds

“Briefly on his boat.”
@jrpsaki Wondering what "brief" means.

“Briefly” is such a relative term, right? Just like … “forthcoming.”

Lying for two days and quietly revealing the truth only after getting caught is being forthcoming? Well, all righty then.

So Kerry WAS aboard his yacht yesterday. Glad 2 know that Egypt, Iran, Syria, Russia/Snowden, etc didn't interrupt his 4th of July plans.
