    Default Surprise! President Bush makes verbal faux pas, says Nelson Mandela is dead

    Mandela still alive after embarrassing Bush remark
    Fri Sep 21, 2007

    JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Nelson Mandela is still very much alive despite an embarrassing gaffe by U.S. President George W. Bush, who alluded to the former South African leader's death in an attempt to explain sectarian violence in Iraq.

    "It's out there. All we can do is reassure people, especially South Africans, that President Mandela is alive," Achmat Dangor, chief executive officer of the Nelson Mandela Foundation, said as Bush's comments received worldwide coverage.

    In a speech defending his administration's Iraq policy, Bush said former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's brutality had made it impossible for a unifying leader to emerge and stop the sectarian violence that has engulfed the Middle Eastern nation.

    "I heard somebody say, Where's Mandela?' Well, Mandela's dead because Saddam Hussein killed all the Mandelas," Bush, who has a reputation for verbal faux pas, said in a press conference in Washington on Thursday.

    Jailed for 27 years for fighting white minority rule, Mandela became South Africa's first black president in 1994. He won a Nobel Peace Prize for preaching racial harmony and guiding the nation peacefully into the post-apartheid era.

    References to his death -- Mandela is now 89 and increasingly frail -- are seen as insensitive in South Africa.

    Gawd. He is SO hitting the bottle again. That, combined with wet brain and terminal stupidity, is not a pretty sight. On the other hand, nobody actually pays any attention to what he says he any more.

    Pish tosh, Mandela hasn't left the country of Africa in some time.

    Thanks for posting this, Laurent. I knew you'd get around to it.

    There are no words. Only thoughts. That is all.

    I read this story when I was at work, and e-mailed it out to just about everyone I knew. Just when you think we've seen the depths of Bush's stupidity, he shows a new level.

    It's ten o'clock here and that statement makes me want to start drinking. Or shoot myself. Whichever.
