In it, the magazine's New York correspondent Marc Pitzke describes Bush as "a colorless politician" whose image only improved when it was compared to the later presidency of his son, George W. Bush. = Ya know, this has to be the BEST description, pertaining to this family I have ever read.

I think it would be great to publish a photo of mr Bush holding up the obit, like Truman holding the Dewey Wins headline.

Reports of his death are greatly exaggerated ...

Ha! I was thinking it wasn't a bad idea; after all, wouldn't you like to know what your obit will say? Then I read what they wrote about him. Maybe not such a good idea after all!!!

I wonder if Der Spiegel mentioned his 58 combat missions and Distinguished Flying Cross as the youngest combat aviator of his time (18 years old). Lord knows the libs who post here generally wouldn't acknowledge that, though some have. I am actually ashamed of those who would trash a former public servant who laid in ICU, be they dem or rep. However, a New York correspondent doing it is par for the course. No couth whatsoever.

This isn't the first time an obituary for a celebrity was accidentally run and probably won't be the last. Many of the major news services have obituaries ready to go for older celebrities so they won't have to start from scratch when they die.
