Emails: Factually Incorrect

I got an email this week that read:
Many will recall that on July 8, 1947, witnesses claimed that an unidentified flying object with five aliens aboard crashed onto a sheep and cattle ranch just outside Roswell, New Mexico. This is a well- known incident that many say has long been covered up by the US Air Force and the federal government.

However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of March 1948, exactly nine months after that historic day, George W Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Condoleezza Rice and Dan Quayle were all born.

See what happens when aliens breed with sheep. This piece of information may clear up a lot of things.

It would have been nice if even one of the people listed had been born in 1948, but no.

  • George W. Bush, born July 6, 1946
  • Dick Cheney, born January 30, 1941
  • Donald Rumsfeld, born July 9, 1932
  • Bill O'Reilly, born September 10, 1949
  • Rush Limbaugh, born January 12, 1951
  • Condoleezza Rice, born November 14, 1954
  • Dan Quayle, born February 4, 1947

Here are some people who were born in March 1948: reggae artist Burning Spear, Irish guitar hero Rory Gallagher, Welsh rock 'n' roller Shakin' Stevens, crime novelist James Ellroy, junkie/folkie James Taylor, CNN's Wolf Blitzer, ugly musical composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, Aerosmith's Steven Tyler, petite actress Rhea Perlman, normal-sized actress Dianne Wiest. The only politician I see born then: Al Gore.
