Here's The Obituary For George H.W. Bush Der Spiegel Accidentally Published

George H. W. Bush is currently in intensive care due to a fever, according to his staff. The situation has unfortunately led to one publication jumping the gun..

German newsweekly Der Spiegel¬†published an unfinished obituary for Bush on its German language website yesterday. The obituary, titled “The Better Bush”, called Bush a “a colorless politician” whose reputation was only improved by the unsuccessful time in office of his son.

The obituary was taken down within minutes but not before a number of Spiegel readers noticed. The magazine has apologized on its Twitter feed.
