bushisms

The Bush DyslexiconPresident George W. Bush is famous for his malapropisms and grammatical gaffes. There’s even a book about them: the cleverly titled Bush Dyslexicon.

newsday.com screenshotI’ve found exclusive evidence that Bush makes more mistakes than most people realize: He’s even switching words that sound the same! Newsday.com quotes Bush as saying “We must not waiver!” Heh.

More seriously, President Bush has a problem. Maybe some of these are transcription errors? He can’t conjugated verbs. He can’t match subject/verbs/object number. He can string lots of word together but it don’t always form sense.

Even more seriously, the author of the Dyslexicon came to a frightening conclusion.

Bush is not an imbecile. He’s not a puppet. I think that Bush is a sociopathic personality. I think he’s incapable of empathy. He has an inordinate sense of his own entitlement, and he’s a very skilled manipulator. And in all the snickering about his alleged idiocy, this is what a lot of people miss.

He has no trouble speaking off the cuff when he’s speaking punitively, when he’s talking about violence, when he’s talking about revenge.

When he struts and thumps his chest, his syntax and grammar are fine.
