Listening to the President: It's Educationalable

This is almost too precious, too perfect and too yummy to believe. Yes, Il Douche'™ has done it again, mangled the English language in ways almost too painful to convey. And this time, he did it at a rally!!!

The Commander-in-Chief was at an event with school kids in New York City Wednesday. It was a photo op designed to show the importance of education.

And that's where his latest tongue twisting emerged. Talking about his education policy, Bush boldly told the crowd - which included some horrified English teachers - that "childrens do learn."

"As yesterday's positive report card shows, childrens do learn when standards are high and results are measured," he made clear. It's worth noting that when the official transcript of the event was issued by the White House, the mistake had been corrected. It's not the first time the U.S. leader has left the grammar police grimacing. During his first run for the Oval Office, Bush famously asked "Is our children learning?"

If the query he posed on Wednesday is any indication, the answer appears to be definitely not.

So, George, how's that No Child Left Behind [sic] program working out for you?

Check out the video (short ad precedes it), especially at the end where the little girl screen right seems to roll her eyes.
