Bushism on Mortgage Help

This is obviously small potatoes, but the commander guy made quite the boo boo today in his press conference on the Great Adjustable Rate Mortgage Freeze:

"I have a message for every homeowner worried about rising mortgage payments: The best you can do for your family is to call 1-800-995-HOPE," Bush said after a White House meeting with administration officials and lenders on a new plan to help.

Unfortunately he was a couple digits off, it is actually 1-888-995-HOPE (4673).
Turns out the number Bush gave will only give hope of a more heavenly kind...

Calls to the wrong number Bush gave out were met with a busy signal. A search on the Internet showed it belongs to the Freedom Christian Academy which offers religious-based curriculum for home schooling and is located in Ponder, Texas northwest of Dallas.
Can't imagine why the number would be busy...
