I haven't been picking on Bush much lately--how much fun is it to kick a man when he's down? Now that the whole country has realized he's a liar, a criminal, quite possibly the worst president we've ever had and a man who hates the Constitution and all it stands for, it seems less important to point out every example that demonstrates the above conclusions. Besides, it's a full-time job, and I already have one of those.
So consider this post a salute, to the first public figure I know of who has managed to release a sequel to one of his most famous verbal gaffes.
The original one, of course, was "Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?"
The new one, uttered last Wednesday, was "As yesterday's positive report card shows, childrens do learn when standards are high and results are measured."
To her credit, when the White House website tried to edit Bush's line in order to be in English, new press secretary Dana Perrino demanded that it reflect the true record and not the scrubbed one.
