Put an end to Bushisms…

Enough is enough. Jacob Weisberg’s “Bushism of the Day” feature on Slate has run its course. It’s time to end it. As a language expert (and I dislike claiming expertise), I do not think that misstatements made during extemporaneous remarks are any indicator of intelligence. I think it is certainly Weisberg’s intent to question the President’s smarts. Yes, some people (Bill Clinton and Alan Keyes for example) are quite good at speaking in strings of clear, and mostly grammatical, sentences. Most of us cannot.
