Jean Schmidt's source denies statement

So freshman Rep. Jean Smith (R-OH), who sent the House into an uproar when she attacked retired Marine Rep. Murtha as a coward, isn't just tactless, she might be a liar as well. She said, "A few minutes ago I received a call from Colonel Danny Bubp, Ohio Representative from the 88th district in the House of Representatives. He asked me to send Congress a message: Stay the course. He also asked me to send Congressman Murtha a message, that cowards cut and run, Marines never do." Only problem is Bubp reportedly denies he said any such thing.

Also: Saturday Night Live spoofs Schmidt, plus the original footage of her comments on the House floor (which were later stricken from the record).
