"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.
