Politicians give us many opportunities to laugh, although that is usually not their intent. George Bush was often funny because he just was a goof--he made one verbal mistake after another. Some of things he said made you wince; others made you smile and yet others made you want to contribute to a fund to help him get a tutor or something.
Today's contribution comes from George...a comment he made during a news conference (year unknown) with the prime minister of Japan:
"It was not always a given that the United States and America would have a close relationship."
I miss that guy...is he doing stand-up somewhere?
