"That wasn't prudent, Der Spiegel."

BERLIN-Germany's respected news weekly Der Spiegel has mistakenly published an obituary for former U.S. President George H.W. Bush.

Well, ok, that was embarrassing. I wonder how many time they will upgrade him to living, then back to dead, you know how the fog of war goes.

Hah. He doesn't have a Firefox plugin that keeps track of his state.

Does he?

I wonder when Francisco Franco is going to weigh in on this?

And Ace Frehley, too.

Though I'm no fan of the man it's ironic that a German magazine, of all nationalities, describe him as a colorless politician.

/We remember the last colorful politician you had, Der Spiegel.
//And so do you.

Is he still dead? I haven't seen an update recently. He might have improved.

InternetSecurityGuard: ghwb.info looks to be available. Hmm...


Sounds like a goldmine. I know as soon as I hear of his death, my first reaction will be checking out ghwb.info.

I looked at it twelve times this week and he's merely ill.
 
2012-12-30 07:23:58 PM  
This whole thing seemed ridiculous to me. Yes, Bush was ill, but with a stubborn fever. Last time I looked, fever was not exactly a likely cause of death. Also, he released a statement after Schwartzkopf's passing the other day. Do you think a deathly ill person is in a position to issue a statement about somebody else's death?

This is utter bullshiat. It was refuted by Joe Conason, who I would say qualifies to be very left-wing.  http://observer.com/2003/10/bush-nazi-smear-unworthy-of-critics/

No, pretty much the same. The left's rhetoric in the 80s-90s was just as full of vitriol and hyperbole.

Great, now what are they going to do when he actually buys the farm? Run the same obit again? And who's going to believe them?

mikemoto: This is utter bullshiat


From your link:

"The involvement of Prescott [Bush] Sr. and other members of the American business aristocracy with Nazi-era industry was shameful, and in some instances illegal-and they knew it. Like so many Americans who made deals with fascist interests or lent political support to them during the 30′s, those businessmen got off rather easily after the war. Most of them, including Bush, were permitted to keep the money they had made with the Germans."

Prescott Bush was fined by the US government under the "Trading With the Enemy Act". Your link is Joe Conason's attempt to absolve GWB Jr of his grandfather's sins.

And it confirms his grandfather's profiteering as a Nazi collaborator.

Nazi collaborator. How's that for a heartwarming family story about grandpa?

Not likely. But he was active in Rome about the same time...

Where would I write Abe Vigoda? I'd really like to send him a post card and say "Hi".

Republicans didn't always vilify the poor. Bush Sr. expanded the Earned Income Credit, which you may remember from such things as the 47%.

His own status page? http://www.abevigoda.com/

Wikipedia had him dead on the 28th. They changed the article back to being alive after he didn't die but not before I screen capped it.
