Description

Being the leader of the free world has its perks-nice house, free travel, ability to order a military strike on anybody you don't like. But there's also a potential downside-people pay attention to what you say and usually write it down. Depending upon your level of eloquence, that could be a problem. Take for example, our 43rd president George W. Bush. He is notorious for (among other things) not so much turning a phrase as twisting, folding, stapling, and mutilating it. Jacob Weisberg, editor-in-chief of Slate magazine, took note of this in his books George W. Bushisms, More George W. Bushisms, and Still More George W. Bushisms, which have sold more than 300,000 copies. He collected such unintentionally funny verbal gaffes as, "I know what I believe, I will continue to articulate what I believe and what I believe-I believe what I believe is right," and "If the terriers and bariffs are torn down, this economy will grow." This calendar continues his sorry litany of verbal miscues, presenting a classic or more recent example on each page. Whether you're amused or alarmed, the humor quotient can't be misunderstimated.show more
