Bush's "Fool me once" speech
Do y'all remember Bush's "We have a saying down in Texas Fool me once sh-sh-shame on m-me fool me ........won't get fooled again"

It may be by far the worst Bush malaprop/brain fart of all time.

Kerry or Move-on should use this clip in a commercial about the WMD/Iraq war misinformation campaign waged by the admin.

What do you think.

1. I've always thought that...


Just show the guy in his finest moment.

Why the hell will our party not use ridicule when the repubs are pulling that shit left and right?

That's really weird. I was just thinking about this same idea yesterday.

Just run this idiot saying that, and than hve a voice over about how easy it is to fool Bush.

2. Fool me once, shame on me....
Fool me twice, then damn, them ads are a'workin'!

The worst Bushism? I disagree - I think it's about mid-scale. There are much better/worse ones, such as when he introduced Colin Powell's wife as "Secretary of Colin Powell".

The one I was referring to:

"And, most importantly, Alma Powell, secretary of Colin Powell, is with us."Washington, D.C., Jan. 30, 2003"

3. That's my favorite as well.
I can't believe the leader of the free world is quoting the Who's songs. What a jackass.

But I'm not sure about using it in an ad. This may give him some leeway on saying that he "was fooled" into invading Iraq, absolving him of responsibility.

7. Here is the quick Time version
http://politicalhumor.about.com/library/multimedia/fool...

I mean seriously folks, I go to bed every night thinking "How in the Hell did this idiot get elected".

I still don't know.

I never will.

13. "How in the Hell did this idiot get elected".
He didn't. More than a half million more votes for Al Gore. Only because of a Supreme Court ruling that no lawyer on this planet will defend did he get "Selected". Certainly Not elected.
