3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By BeatleBangs1964 TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 9 Mar 2008
Format: Paperback
This book is a panic and one of the funniest I've read! You can see the chasm between the Lingua Pura and Bush's atrocious treatment (or should I say MIStreatment) of language. The malapropisms that man is guilty of would embarrass most people, but it is doubtful that Bush (aka Dumbya) is able to see that. Even Archie Bunker, the subliterate fictional bigot of "All in the Family" fame was much more articulate than Dumbya! I have yet to hear anybody tear the language asunder as this man has. It's embarrassing! I guess you could say Dumbya is unwittingly witty as he is unintentionally funny.

As another reviewer stated in his clever review on the US board, luckily Archie never governed a country. Even so, at least Archie would be a tad brighter than Dumbya, whose administration is of the emperor's new clothing genre. This naked emperor has provided comic relief with some of his more ludicrous statements.

Regardless of whether or not you support Dumbya, this delightful book will provide a good look at what passes for a mind for Dumbya. The man is an embarrassment!
