During the most recent Democratic presidential debate, Dennis Kucinich said,
“More people in this country have seen UFOs than, I think, approve of George Bush’s presidency.’”

But there’s something wrong with the Post’s fact-check — the headline:
The President Flies Far Above UFOs, Senator
Kucinich, of course, is a Representative.
