This story from one of the most unfavorite sites, as liberals see it, has a whole pile of absolute truth in it with nothing at all that anyone can call political crap. It is too bad His Arrogance hasn't heard of this story.

His Arrogance will never learn because His Arrogance doesn't believe he is a failure. The rest of the world knows and laughs at him and he thinks they are laughing with him as he is the only one out there with new clothes on.

I'll bet His Arrogance doesn't even know who Jim Ryun is. Do you?

I remember seeing both of the Ryun races spoken about in this article. The first one under 4 minutes may have not happened if not for his teammate who was his rabbit and still finished the race.

He had several under four minutes miles in high school, and college he also won a silver medal in the Mexican Olympics. I believe that he ran other races in the 1500 meter and other meter races of which I am not familiar with. Plus he was a republican member of the house of representatives from 1996 to 2007.

He had only those two 4 minute miles while in high school and then had to run 1500 meters since internationally the mile is seldom run. He did get knocked down in another Olympic 1500.

He sure was a Representative in the House and was pretty conservative to get that job. Good boy.
