Bushism of the Day

Second Debate Special

“The truth of that matter is, if you listen carefully, Saddam would still be in power if [Kerry] were the president of the United States, and the world would be a lot better off.”—St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 8, 2004. (Thanks to Ed Mielnicki.)

“I hear there’s rumors on the Internets that we’re going to have a draft.”—Ibid.

“We all thought there was weapons there, Robin. My opponent thought there was weapons there.”—Ibid.

“And what my worry is is that, you know, it [a reimported drug] looks like it’s from Canada, and it might be from a third world.”—Ibid.
