Bushism is not uncommon

Much has been written about George W. Bush's language, so much so that his 'language' has now achieved sub-dialect status. It is a constant source of amusement and unkind jokes, not only in his native America, but probably all across the world. Blame this on how fast and wide information and news travel - especially the bad news. For example, Bush has been quoted as having said:

Those who enter the country illegally violate the law.
Well, of course.

But he is not the only one belabouring the point. Last evening, at the Countdown (to 2006) Party on Mount Faber in Singapore, host Gurmit Singh said on 'live' TV that his
birthday falls on the 24th of March every year.
Well, of course.

I think Americans are unkind to its own, but that's also one thing I admire about the Americans - they can laugh at themselves. In some other countries, jokes like this can land you in court and/or in jail!

Happy New Year everyone who live on this crazy crazy Earth.
