Reports of Nelson Mandela’s Death Greatly Exaggerated

This isn’t even par for the course with Bush. It’s just bizarrely stupid:

I thought an interesting comment was made — somebody said to me, I heard somebody say, “Now, where’s Mandela?” Well, Mandela’s dead because Saddam Hussein killed all the Mandelas.

Now I get what he meant, that any Mandela-like figure in Iraq would have been killed during the Hussein regime. But still, he has to know that it’s going to be broadcast across the globe that the US president thinks Nelson Mandela is dead. What’s more, this wasn’t a slip of the tongue thing – it was an anecdote he brought up.
Just sixteen more months, just sixteen more months…
