Can you repeat that? On second thought; don't.

One of the things that continues to elude me is how someone who speaks with the clarity of an adult in an old Peanuts cartoon can twice be elected president.

Case in point… in an presser this morning, “President” Bush wanted to thank Lt. Gen. Ray Odierno, who had been serving as the No. 2 commander in Iraq, for his years of service.

Bush was trying to say “snatching defeat from the jaws of victory,” but instead offered up this nonsensical statement;

“I appreciate the fact that you really snatched defeat out of the jaws of those who were trying to defeat us in Iraq.”
