Harry Shearer runs a fact check on George W. Bush's memoir

Posted by on Tue, Nov 23, 2010 at 5:29 PM

Harry Shearer — comedian, satirist, radio host, actor, New Orleans resident, HuffPo blogger (we forgive you, Harry) and documentarian — has parsed the Katrina section of former President George W. Bush's memoir Decision Points. Click on over to Planet Arianna to read the whole thing, but we'll go ahead and spoilerize the conclusion here:

It's almost as if President Bush's account of this event was sealed in amber in early September 2005, and he's done no reading, or fact-checking, about it in preparation for his encounter with History. But that couldn't be true, could it?
