Assault with intent to kill
The English language, that is.

Don't misunderestimate Bush Lite, he hasn't let up a bit.

While with my sister and brother-in-law yesterday, they replayed me an
interview of Bush with Brian Williams. Williams is Republican-friendly, but even
he must have had a hard time keeping a straight face. Any Brits will love this,
even if their beloved Queen's English has been the victim of assault with intent
to kill.

Williams was asking about what Bush had read this summer. Bush mentioned
reading Kamoo. Kamoo? I wondered if this was some obscure Pakistani author, or
maybe some new Australian Aboriginal literary hotshot. It turns out he meant
Albert Camus, the French (oh, sorry, Freedom) existentialist. Bush then
explained he had quite an ecolectic reading list. I promise I am not making
this up. We have it on tape.

We played that one back twice to make sure we had heard correctly. Yup, an
ecolectic reading list. Ecologically epileptic? Ectoplasmically apoplectic?
Whatever it was, the man with his finger on the button is now reading an
ecolectic selection of books.

You know, as in "diverse literatory material."

2. And don't forget that the Deciderator also read...
..."some Shakespeare books." That's the first I've heard about Ol' Will being a novelist. I always thought he was a playwright.

3. One can only assume that....
Bush does little else with books other than to play with
them, and the distinction was lost on him..............
