I. . . what?! That's ridiculous.
I am so scared that he's in charge of the 'big red button', so scared! I had to read it five times, "Saddam Hussein killed all the Mandelas" what?? I think he cleaned his crack pipe out with Easy Oven-Off or something. I really do.
i know! when i heard this during his speech i was like "who in the hell gave him that double shot of bourbon in his morning coffee before he gave this speech???"
It's clear from the transcript that the literal meaning of the question "Where's Mandela?" GWB was asked is "Where are the Iraqi leaders who will play the same role that Mandela played in the rebuilding of South Africa?" GWB's response was a pithy metaphor summarizing the situation there.
Apparently, GWB's critics are either (a) so dishonest as to give a false spin on the statement, (b) too lazy to check out the context before reporting it, or (c) too stupid to understand the analogy.
The problem is that Bush has an remarkable habit of saying utterly bizarre things such as ""too many OB/GYN's aren't able to practice their love with women all across the country." that it's become quite easy to take something like this at face value: Bush saying something stupid is the default.
