You know, I've had to listen to wiseacres for the last eight years... [UPDATED]
...try to "explain" to me President Bush's rhetoric.

UPDATE: Oh, is somebody embarrassed, now? [Further UPDATE: After thinking about it for a bit, I've actually changed my mind on this. That text was probably just cut and pasted from the original version of the speech; the people who did that probably didn't even notice that their version of the text didn't include Obama's oopsie.
Said "explanations" usually involved allegations of drug use, general lack of intelligence, bad programming, or... no, actually, that pretty much covers it*, depressingly. The point is, there seems to be a definite interest out there for telling me the nefarious reasons for Bush's patterns of speech.
Since this is an acceptable topic: what's Senator Obama's excuse, then?
On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes -- and I see many of them in the audience here today -- our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.
Power Line (H/T Glenn) goes on to mention the deliberate stupidities in that particular speech (as opposed to the apparently accidental one noted above). Personally, I prefer to contemplate the thought that this was actually deliberate, and that Obama's going after the zombie vote. He's from Chicago, after all: politicians from that city are quite used to getting the dead to the polls.
*For a group of people that pride themselves on their cleverness, progressives aren't actually all that good at insults. The average one seems to have, at most, five.
