Number 40 on the Bush's idiot statement list is mind boggling. How could this country elect this man into presidency? Twice? The man who started two wars without having any clue what a war is?

Difference is the Bush list is true. The Dem list is not. Look at this entry in JH's list: 'I invented the Internet.' - Al Gore

Erm, busted.

The whole list is a lie because one is mis-quoted?

Yes, one intentional misquote makes the entire list suspect. You don't agree?

No, it makes the one mis-quote suspect. I'm sure if someone gave a shit they could go through the Bush list and find a mistake too. I don't give a shit so I won't, but you get the idea.

Except it wasn't an innocent mistake, it was intentional, which suggests the entire list as a parody. Find something similar in the Bush list, and I'll gladly apply the same criteria.

Well, whatever – but as Dan Quayle once noted the United States is the greatest planet on Earth, can’t argue with that:
