A President George who Didn't Lie

Here's some topical humour to mark George Washington's birthday this week, from creativewit.com
http://creativewit.com/george_washington_never_told_a_lie.html

"George Washington, as a boy, was ignorant of the commonest accomplishments of youth. He could not even lie." Mark Twain
"George Washington never told a lie - but then he entered politics when the country was very young".
"George Washington was the first and last man elected President of the United States without telling a lie".
"George Washington never told a lie, but then he was never stopped by a state trooper for speeding."
"George Washington never told a lie, but then he never had to file a Form 1040."

To which could be added:
"George Washington never told a lie, but then he never had to justify an illegal war which only a few crazy neo-conservatives from the AEI, PNAC and the Henry Jackson Society thought was a good idea"
