How Fake Quotes Get Started

From's list of spurious GWash quotations

"We had quitters during the Revolution too...we called them 'Kentuckians.'"

This quote was actually stated by George Washington's ghost, in an episode of The Simpsons.

Sort of like how "I can see Russia from my house" wasn't actually said by Sarah Palin, but by Saturday Night Live's Tina Fey.
