George W. Bush: 1946 - Tonight!?

265083418_6145a3c4fd_b_1 Talk about attention-grabbing headlines!

This PARODY front-page article about an imagined assassination of U.S. President George W. Bush appeared in today's "The London Paper" -- a freebie newspaper distributed on London streets and the Tube.  The publicity stunt was actually an advertisement for the controversial documentary, "Death of a President."  The movie will be released in US theaters later this month, but it's airing tonight on Britain's "More4" television network.

The inside article begins under the headline "The Assassination." The lede paragraph reads: "George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States of America has died from gunshot wounds at the age of 61. Surgeous battled to save the President's life for several hours but were finally forced to declare his death to a stunned nation."

The U.S. Secret Service must be having a field day over this flick.

I wonder what this newspaper will fetch me on eBay!?
