An After-Dinner Mint
Today marks the end of the food related entries. It was fun, and my thanks to Mdme. Stinkypaw for the idea.
I'll be heading to South Florida tomorrow, but I still intend to post daily, though. You know the drill. If you want to get together, give me a shout. I'll be there for about a week. And just to let y'all know, I'm broke as hell so unless you've won the lotto, don't book that table at the Ritz-Carlton just yet. ;-)
And now, ladies and gentlemen, I give you our Buffoon In Chief, George W. Bush:
"I remember meeting a mother of a child who was abducted by the North Koreans right here in the Oval Office."—Washington, D.C., June 26, 2008
"Should the Iranian regime—do they have the sovereign right to have civilian nuclear power? So, like, if I were you, that's what I'd ask me. And the answer is, yes, they do."—Speaking to reporters in Washington, D.C., July 2, 2008
"Throughout our history, the words of the Declaration have inspired immigrants from around the world to set sail to our shores. These immigrants have helped transform 13 small colonies into a great and growing nation of more than 300 people."—Charlottesville, Va., July 4, 2008
"We've got a lot of relations with countries in our neighborhood."—Kranj, Slovenia, June 10, 2008
"And so the fact that they purchased the machine meant somebody had to make the machine. And when somebody makes a machine, it means there's jobs at the machine-making place."—visiting the Silverado Cable Co., Mesa, Ariz., May 27, 2008
And finally, perhaps his most prescient statement:
"I'll be long gone before some smart person ever figures out what happened inside this Oval Office."—Washington, D.C., May 12, 2008
These are but a few of Dubya's linguistic marvels. You can see many, many more at The Complete Bushisms.
