Andy Rooney: Posterboy for the mathematically challenged

During his segment on cBS' 60 Minutes this past Sunday he said, "So far almost 2,800 American soldiers have been killed in Iraq. I say 'almost 2,800' because there is no exact number. It changes by six or eight every day." Gateway Pundit points out that if Rooney's math was correct in losing six to eight soldiers daily, it would mean that we had suffered 7830 to 10,440 dead American soldiers. Rooney was only off by 250 to 370%. I doubt his calculations on his Social Security checks are that far off.
