""Most of you probably didn't know that I have a new book out. Some guy put together a collection of my wit and wisdom -- or, as he calls it, my accidental wit and wisdom. [Laughter] But I'm kind of proud that my words are already in book form.""
-- President George W. Bush,
discussing and reading from George W. Bushisms
By now, most of you probably do know about George W. Bushisms, the bestselling collection of misstatements made on the campaign trail by our president. Now, in More George W. Bushisms, Jacob Weisberg reveals that the malapropisms didn't stop on Inauguration Day:
""I've coined new words like misunderstanding and Hispanically.""
""I haven't had a chance to talk, but I'm confident we'll get a bill that I can live with if we don't.""
""Our nation must come together to unite.""
""There's no question that the minute I got elected, the storm clouds on the horizon were getting nearly directly overhead.""
These and many other presidential pearls are hilariously on display in More George W. Bushisms.
