My dear friend photograce rants about how we elected a Shrubbery as President here and gives several examples of how Bush can't "string together a damned sentence." But here's the best example, and her comment (QWP):


But this one took the cake for me. If you can follow this... more power to ya.
"Because the—all which is on the table begins to address the big cost drivers. For example, how benefits are calculate, for example, is on the table; whether or not benefits rise based upon wage increases or price increases. There's a series of parts of the formula that are being considered. And when you couple that, those different cost drivers, affecting those—changing those with personal accounts, the idea is to get what has been promised more likely to be—or closer delivered to what has been promised. Does that make any sense to you? It's kind of muddled. Look, there's a series of things that cause the—like, for example, benefits are calculated based upon the increase of wages, as opposed to the increase of prices. Some have suggested that we calculate—the benefits will rise based upon inflation, as opposed to wage increases. There is a reform that would help solve the red if that were put into effect.

At least when Clinton spoke, the man made sense, or you could at least follow the mental choo-choo. That last one... That choo-choo went down the tracks with the washed out bridge, and plummeted into a canyon followed by the Wile E. Coyote "thump" sound. What Gore lacked in charisma, he made up for with intellect and personal character, and, well, the ability to string together a damned sentence.

I cannot believe this man was elected. To ANYTHING. *headdesk*
