George Bush's Pearl Harbor

On September 7th, 1988, President George Bush addressed the American Legion in Louisville, Kentucky. "This is Pearl Harbor Day," he declared. "47 years ago to this very day, we were hit and hit hard at Pearl Harbor..."

Alas, Pearl Harbor was hit on December 7th -- putting Bush three months off target.

[Kevin Phillips once called Bush "a Boy Scout with a hormone imbalance" and Jim Hightower, in 1988, commented that "if ignorance ever goes to $40 a barrel, I want drilling rights on George Bush's head."]
