Speaking fluent Bush.

Slate compiled a list of their Top 25 “Bushisms” of all time. A few of my faves:

“Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?”—Florence, S.C., Jan. 11, 2000

“Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB/GYNs aren’t able to practice their love with women all across the country.”—Poplar Bluff, Mo., Sept. 6, 2004

[The words OB/GYN and “love” should never, EVER be in the same sentence.]

12. “There’s an old saying in Tennessee—I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee—that says, fool me once, shame on—shame on you. Fool me—you can’t get fooled again.”—Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 17, 2002

15. “It’s important for us to explain to our nation that life is important. It’s not only life of babies, but it’s life of children living in, you know, the dark dungeons of the Internet.”—Arlington Heights, Ill., Oct. 24, 2000

[Ooohhh those sneaky Internets!]

19. “I’m looking forward to a good night’s sleep on the soil of a friend.”—on the prospect of visiting Denmark, Washington, D.C., June 29, 2005

[Preach on, Dubya. I know there’s nothing I enjoy more than sleeping on the dirty, soft, soil of my friends.]

Is it wrong that I’m a little disappointed we probably won’t get too many more Bushisms? It’s almost endearing. You know…in that help a special kid with his helmet kinda way.
