It's been awhile since I've posted a commentary on the goof that currently resides in the White House. I was perusing some of the "Bushisms" web sites and thought you all might enjoy a good laugh and groan...

A few of the recent notable malapropisms from the proud Texan:

"And there is distrust in Washington. I am surprised, frankly, at the amount of distrust that exists in this town. And I'm sorry it's the case, and I'll work hard to try to elevate it."— Speaking on National Public Radio, Jan. 29, 2007.
I truly believe he will do his best to "elevate" it.

"Because of your work, children who once wanted to die are now preparing to live."—speaking at the White House summit on malaria, Dec. 14, 2006

"No doubt in my mind, with your help, Dave Lamberti will be the next United States congressman."—speaking at a campaign rally for Jeff Lamberti, Des Moines, Iowa, Oct. 26, 2006.
It might be a good idea to remember the candidate's name.

"You know, one of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror."—Interview with CBS News, Washington D.C., Sept. 6, 2006
That is a telling remark. His actions certainly have made sure that Iraq is a mess.

President Bush: Peter. Are you going to ask that question with shades on?
Peter Wallsten of the Los Angeles Times: I can take them off.
Bush: I'm interested in the shade look, seriously.
Wallsten: All right, I'll keep it, then.
Bush: For the viewers, there's no sun.
Wallsten: I guess it depends on your perspective.
Bush: Touché.

This is indicative of his disconnection from reality. His propensity to make a fool of himself and his total lack of grasp on his surroundings is unsettling, to say the least.

I post these things because they are too funny. At the same time, they are disturbing. How did such a blithering idiot ever make it to such a level? His entire existence has a curious aroma of corruption.
