"Let me finish." How overworked is that statement by Bush?
Someone told him it would make him look in charge if he said that a couple of time but he uses on almost every question and the reason people keep interrupting him is because he is not saying anything.

4. I prefer the adding of ", Larry" to it Ross Perot style

I think he still adds "Larry" to it if Larry King is around or not.

5. As overworked as "suiciders" and "kill innocent life" and other
bizarre phrases that no one else on the planet uses.

6. My favorite is when he says it to the person in his earpiece. That is how
one knows when he is ad libbing.

7. I'll never forget it! He was at the debate with Kerry and
he still had the green light, no one was trying to stop him from talking, he had the floor and he blurted out "Let me finnish." The M$M said nothing of it. Just imagine if this had happened to a Democratic canditate or President.

12. Another great moment
in American history! That was so unbelievable. To me, it was the clincher that he was definitely wired. (Aside from the wire shown running under his tie and jacket; the bulge on his back; the earpiece in his ear; the long pauses; the stuttering, stammering, incohesive answers; the eye movement which experts say was the same as a those of a person listening...) Man! Why haven't the press nailed this guy yet???

14. And, as soon as he said that, he had a ten second pause
where he was wondering if the batteries had died ...

8. HELEN THOMAS asked a question, the answer to which he was
evading, she sort of interrupted him to force him to answer the question and he said, in a tone of voice which made me think of an elastic band which is being stretched to the limit and it is about to break, 'LET ME FINISH, MA'AM'. pathetic little shit that he is.

9. It's Freudian. It's a plea to the people to let him finish this term.
I didn't see the PC. Did he smack his teeny hand on the podium and lean forward and furrow his widdle brow as he said, "Lemme finish, dammit, you bad bad person"?

11. I would love to say, . . .
"well, then, quit stuttering and stammering and SAY SOMETHING, G_dammit!"

I just hate that.
