More Absurdities From "The Shrub"

The late (and really great) columnist/writer, Molly Ivins, frequently referred to DUBYA as "The Shrub" - a nickname I always thought was pretty appropriate. Hence the title of this week's Bushisms -which as you can see, are once again posted a bit late. My apologies. It's been a busy weekend and first day of the new week too.

You know, Sandi has a good point.

And even if it's not stand up comedy, I'm sure the official biographer for the soon-to-be-former President can uncover more of these tidbits to fill up some more calendars.
