George + Fatuous =

one fantastic article in Slate on inane utterances of one self-declared Decider.

To wit:
"George Washington's long struggle for freedom has also inspired generations of Americans to stand for freedom in their own time. Today, we're fighting a new war to defend our liberty and our people and our way of life."

Did I miss something? Is this one of the categories on Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me? The one called "Things you should have learned in school were you paying attention..."

Did George Washington invade a sovereign nation 1,000's of miles away? Did he take out their leader (or whatever), kill 1,000's (and say oops), and occupy the rest?

This is the George Washington, right?
