In light of the recent claims that George W. Bush kept us safe*, I think it's time that we examine some other historical legacies to set the record straight.
O.J. Simpson never killed anyone.@
John Demjanjuk was not a concentration camp guard. #
Ronald Reagan never raised taxes.$
Tim McVeigh never blew up any buildings.%
Jim Jones did not lead a cult. ^
Han Solo shot first. &
Joseph McCarthy was an American hero. ~
* - Except for 9/11, some abortion clinic bombings, and the DC snipers (among others)
@ - Except for June 12, 1994
# - After 1946
$ - After 1988
% - After April 19, 1995
^ - After November 18, 1978
& - Okay, he actually did.
~ - If you're a fucking idiot.
I'm glad we've had the opportunity to clear the record on these important items. God Bless 'Murica.
