Bush-Whacked: Chronicles of Government Stupidityby Leland Gregory
Who Leland Gregory voted for in the 2004 presidential election is his business. But when George W. Bush won a second term, Gregory had to be doing cartwheels around his computer. The humorist, after all, makes a career
"It's important for people to know that I'm the president of everybody." --President George W. Bush, from Air Force One, January 14, 2005
Who Leland Gregory voted for in the 2004 presidential election is his business. But when George W. Bush won a second term, Gregory had to be doing cartwheels around his computer. The humorist, after all, makes a career of recording human behavior at, let's just say, its less-than-brilliant moments.
Bush-Whacked does a thorough job of tracking the president's language mangling as well as the inept bungling of his administration:
* "And so during these holiday seasons, we thank our blessings . . ." --GWB at Fort Belvoir, Va., December 21, 2004.
* Through bureaucratic mismanagement, parts for a top-secret spy plane, originally intended for destruction, were discovered being auctioned off on eBay. --New York Post
* "(T)he illiteracy level of our children are appalling." --GWB, Washington, D.C., January 23, 2004
With his expert nose for nuttiness, Gregory includes numerous perplexing quotes, wacky anecdotes, and weird one-liners in this hysterical collection. This isn't the president at his finest, just Dubya at his funniest.
