12. He's a Shrub! Remember how that one came about?

 

-

Quoting from my DU (Unofficial) information Glossary (Dictionary)
http://dug.amystrange.org/index.html#shrub


Shrub

Bush, George W.


"Originally used in the Molly Ivins Book: 'Shrub: The Short

but Happy Political Life of George W. Bush'"

--arwalden



"This comes from the Spanish word 'arbusto' I believe Which

was the name of one of his many failed business ventures. You

see, he thought it was Spanish for "bush," when it really

meant "shrub." A minor but hilarious distinction."
