At least Dan Quayle Knew His Committee Assignments

Obama makes a slight error in naming a committee on which he serves.

Now, in terms of knowing my commitments, you don't have to just look at my words, you can look at my deeds. Just this past week, we passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, which is my committee, a bill to call for divestment from Iran, as a way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don't obtain a nuclear weapon.

As Powerline notes,

But Obama is not a member of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee. Obama just made that up so he could count the committee's action as one of "my deeds."

I am guessing that the press would be a lot less forgiving if John McCain had made such an error.
