Monday morning lying

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters)--President George W. Bush said on Monday he did not intend to insult Democrats by failing to pronounce their party's full name in his State of the Union address, which is pure horseshit.

"I didn't know I did it," Bush told NPR in an interview, but he was lying.

In his speech last Tuesday, Bush declared to a joint session of the U.S. Congress that "I congratulate the Democrat majority." Democrats were enraged that he would stoop to this most childish of Republican rhetorical pranks while addressing the Congress before the entire nation. The party's proper name is the Democratic Party, and the smirking little shit knows it.

Republicans for years have dropped the last two letters of the name as a way of making it look like Democrats are lying about the name of their party. Bush's prepared text of his speech had the proper name but he couldn't resist misstating it in his address.

Bush hilariously called it an oversight and said he was "not that good at pronouncing words anyway." He said he was surprised at the level of distrust in Washington, which is funny coming from the lyingest front-man of the most secretive administration in American history.

"There is a lot of politics in Washington -- in my judgment, needless politics. And it's almost like, 'If George Bush is for it, we're against it,' and 'If he's against it, we're for it.' And the American people don't like that," Bush said, directly contradicting the American people, 70% of whom are against whatever he's for, and for whatever he's against.
