Top 10 Bushisms of 2007 — One thing I've never understood — why is it acceptable to have a president who talks like a junior high special ed student? It doesn't reflect well on Bush himself, on the Republican party, on conservatives in general, and on America at large. The only answer I can come up with is the signature anti-intellectualism of conservative America. A favorite liberal game: imagine the press reaction if Hillary or Obama couldn't keep Austria and Australia straight. The media would go to town on it. Bush? Lifetime free pass from the "liberal" media.
