Breaking: George H.W. Bush is still alive

WBAP, Texas Station, Falsely Reports Death Of George H.W. Bush

A Texas radio station was forced to apologize on Thursday after falsely reporting that former president George H.W. Bush had died.

The Dallas Observer flagged the error from local station WBAP. The station not only reported that Bush -- who has been in the hospital for weeks due to complications from bronchitis -- was dead, but it also sent out breaking news alerts to its email followers.

4. Let us pray for a near death experience and/or death bed confession

 


That is the only way he can save his sorry soul after everything he did to the nation, and we could really use someone spilling the beans right now.

10. Won't he need to die before 1/1/2013 so he has less estate taxes?

Wait a minute. His wife needs to be deceased too.
