Can The 28%ers Keep Up?

It's bad enough that the infamous 28%ers continue to defend Gee Dubya Bush every time he opens his mouth and vomits idiotic bile like, "Is our children learning?" Now they have to defend, "Childrens do learn."

While in South Carolina in January 2000, he said: "Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?"

Now, Dubya has answered his own stupid question...

"As yesterday's positive report card shows," he said, "childrens do learn when standards are high and results are measured."

Gee, Gee Dubya. Would've been swell if someone had told you...

The test results released Tuesday are not the ones used under No Child Left Behind, but the administration said that they show the progress since the law was passed with bipartisan support. Math scores improved among fourth- and eighth-graders, and black and Hispanic students made gains, although they still trailed their white counterparts. Eighth-grade reading scores, on the other hand, have not changed much since 1998.

As for those 28%ers who would march merrily off a cliff for Gee Dubya Bush...

Recognize any familiar names in this USA Today article?

Thanks to Bush, bloggers are hooked on phonics

The White House was none to happy to learn yesterday that a draft of President Bush's speech to the U.N. General Assembly was posted online with phonetic spellings and other markings that weren't supposed to be seen by anyone outside the administration.

Here's a selection of the best or worst, depending on your perspective, uses of phonetics by bloggers who wrote about the snafu:

• stoo-PID-ih-tee of the White House press corps (Michelle Malkin)
• 28%ers Defend Bush's Stoo-PID-It-Tee (Delilah Boyd)
• Wiff-Dra Fr-Um Eye-Rak (Out of Iraq Bloggers Caucus)
• Bush's UN Speech Full of Fone-eh-tick Pronunciations for World Leaders (ABC News Political Radar)
• Bush Hooked On FON-iks at UN (World from Newser)
• Bush gets phonetic pronunciation guide ta hep ‘im tawk rite (Aftermath News)

Note to USA Today: The White House was none to happy should read: The White House was none too happy.

My favorite reader comment posted after the article:

Eye-am Ta-yad of d-is Pre-z-de-nt

And how convenient that the White House stenography equipment "disappeared" long enough for Bush's handlers to edit the "childrens is learning" gaffe on the White House website.

That's a Goebbels gold star moment.

Usually, they just scrub the gaffes and post them without batting a beady little eye.

This time, however, they felt compelled to fake a reason?

That's how the over-taxed brain of a 28%er works, y'all.

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
