Nelson Mandela survives Bush's pronouncement of his death

President Bush once again managed to sound more comical than knowledgeable when attempting to make a statement of some profoundness. In hoping to convey that Saddam Hussein had effectively killed all the present and future "Mandelas" of the world, he instead pronounced the former South African leader Nelson Mandela dead. Metaphorical references are not his thing evidently.
