Still 2 months of this to go

George Bush did his favourite type of speech today in Kentucky -- before a cheering audience of troops. The speech is noteworthy for its completely unreflective, let alone unrepentant, expression of his view on Iraq. But here's the part that's also typical Bush --

I appreciate all the local and state officials who are here today. I particularly want to point out one person -- Staff Sergeant John [sic] Forbess. I had the honor of meeting John [sic] at the base of Air Force One. He was severely wounded in a helicopter crash in Iraq in 2003. Yet, despite his wounds, he volunteers in the Fisher House.

The dude's name is Josh, not John. He hitches his wagon to a wounded veteran and can't even get his name right.
