I don’t often get much of a laugh out of politicians’ yap-yap but President Box’o'rocks’ struggles with the English language are the gift that keeps on giving.
Last month, in a string of seven interviews, Sarah Palin misspoke herself once and said South Korea when she meant North Korea and, of course, the press was all over her for it.
But Ms. Palin apparently has a mean streak and so she responded by posting the following message on her Facebook page:
A Thanksgiving Message to All 57 States
By Sarah Palin on Thursday, November 25, 2010 at 8:46pm
“My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate – from the FBI’s 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system. We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. And let’s face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I don’t know what the term is in Austrian for that…”
These are, in case you hadn’t been paying attention, some of the recent gaffes of….all together now….President Box’o'rocks (Bless His Holy Name), the greatest speakerator ever to take up temporary lodging at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Not that you’d have much occasion to notice because the press never covers such Presidential gaffes.
And he was at it again last week, when he told a foreign audience that our national motto was E Pluribus Unum and some ministers had to remind him that our motto is In God We Trust. Let’s see what next week brings.
