The term Bushism is a neologism that refers to a number of peculiar words, phrases, pronunciations, malapropisms, and semantic or linguistic errors that have occurred in the public speaking of United States President George W. Bush and, before that, of his father George H. W. Bush, a former United States president. The term has become part of popular folklore and is the basis of a number of websites and published books. It is often used to caricature the two presidents. Common characteristics include malapropisms, the creation of neologisms, and spoonerisms. This occasional misuse of the English language in formal and public speeches has spawned several books that documenting the statements. The first, Bushisms/President George Herbert Walker Bush in His Own Words, was released in 1992. Bushism books have been released in Germany, France, and Italy. A poem entitled Make the Pie Higher, composed entirely of Bushisms, was compiled by high school English teacher Dirk Schulze under the pseudonym of Richard Thompson, as an example of a found poem for his students.
Make the Pie Higher I think we all agree, the past is over. This is still a dangerous world. It's a world of madmen And uncertainty And potential mental losses. Rarely is the question asked Is our children learning? Will the highways of the internet Become more few? How many hands have I shaked? They misunderestimate me. I am a pitbull on the pantleg of opportunity. I know that the human being and the fish Can coexist. Families is where our nation finds hope Where our wings take dream. Put food on your family! Knock down the tollbooth! Vulcanize society! Make the pie higher! Make the pie higher!

Another flaming Bush thread
Apparently you got your ideas from MSNBC.
Nothing new. The internet is full of this stuff. How about some creativity for a change.
You better save your energy for the new puppet that is about to be sworn in. Umm Ummm Umm he is only as good as the words that are given to him.
