Thanks to Bush, bloggers are hooked on phonics

The White House was none to happy to learn yesterday that a draft of President Bush's speech to the U.N. General Assembly was posted online with phonetic spellings and other markings that weren't supposed to be seen by anyone outside the administration.

Here's a selection of the best or worst, depending on your perspective, uses of phonetics by bloggers who wrote about the snafu:

• stoo-PID-ih-tee of the White House press corps (Michelle Malkin)
• 28%ers Defend Bush's Stoo-PID-It-Tee (Delilah Boyd)
• Wiff-Dra Fr-Um Eye-Rak (Out of Iraq Bloggers Caucus)
• Bush's UN Speech Full of Fone-eh-tick Pronunciations for World Leaders (ABC News Political Radar)
• Bush Hooked On FON-iks at UN (World from Newser)
• Bush gets phonetic pronunciation guide ta hep ‘im tawk rite (Aftermath News) LINK

How cool is that?

Start blogging, y'all!
