This is Tough, So He’ll Talk Slowly

I don’t know whether I’ve heard someone else say this before, or whether it just seems familiar because it’s one of those things that’s so obvious once somebody says it. Atrios on George W. Bush:

Watching Bush speak you realize he’s a really dumb person who thinks everyone in the room is even dumber than he is.

This is why he slows down on the three-syllable words, and why, as The Daily Show noted in 2006, he spends so much time explaining what his job is.

I believe I should thank Adam Chodikoff for that.
