    More Shame on Bush. Fool Me Once... (Flash/Video)

    I've captured from The Daily Show the clip of W struggling to say "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." Notice the look of abject fear as he realizes that he's going to muff it and it's going to end up on the news, and on damn fool weblogs.

    And so it has.

    Fool Me Twice

    Speaking about the need for the United Nations to confront Iraq's President Saddam Hussein, Bush told an audience at a school in Nashville, Tennessee:

    "We're trying to figure out how best to make the world a peaceful place.

    There's an old saying in Tennessee - I know it's in Texas, it's probably in Tennessee - that says, fool me once, shame on ... shame on you. It fool me. We can't get fooled again."

    The evidence suggests Mr Bush was trying to say: "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."

    After that he decided to keep it simple. The United Nations, he insisted, "must not be fooled".

    George W Bush says many powerful and insightful things.

    Bush wages war on English

    President George Bush and the English language have had a rocky relationship.

    Mr Bush, inventor of words including "subliminable" and "misunderestimate", has often drawn bewildered looks for verbal gaffes.

    He was recently speaking of thousands of terrorists who had been arrested.

    "We're hauling them in," he boasted. "The other day we got the fellow ... " After a pause: "I forgot the guy's name." "Moussaoui," prompted a member of the audience.

    "No, it wasn't Moussaoui," Mr Bush replied, as his policy speech came to a grinding halt. "Binalshibh is the guy's name."

    Though most of the recent Bushisms have gone unnoticed, there have been some memorable occasions where he has mangled a cliche or said something weird to produce awkward public moments.

    Speaking about the need for the United Nations to confront Iraq's President Saddam Hussein, he told an audience at a school in Nashville, Tennessee: "We're trying to figure out how best to make the world a peaceful place.

    There's an old saying in Tennessee - I know it's in Texas, it's probably in Tennessee - that says, fool me once, shame on ... shame on you. It fool me. We can't get fooled again."

    The evidence suggests Mr Bush was trying to say: "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."

    After that he decided to keep it simple. The United Nations, he insisted, "must not be fooled".

    Mr Bush recently met lawmakers to discuss terrorism insurance. He then fielded questions from reporters, who ignored the topic of the meeting and asked about Iraq as the lawmakers sat tight. Appearing to sympathise, Mr Bush turned to Democrat Senator Paul Sarbanes, and said: "Thanks for serving as a prop."

    An aide to Sarbanes insisted that the senator was not offended by being called a prop.

    Sometimes, the president's malaprops are due simply to dialect.

    In late August, he told an audience in Oklahoma that tax cuts are desirable because, "if you let people have their own money, they will demand a gooder service", and, "when somebody produces that gooder service, somebody is more likely to find jobs".

    As it turns out, Mr Bush's Texas drawl masked the fact that he was really speaking of "a good or service". He corrected the problem in later speeches, referring to "a good or a service".

    But, in Baltimore last week, regression. The President told Marylanders that more money in their pockets means more to spend on - what else? - "a gooder service".

    However, he seems to have a sense of humour about his linguistic buffoonery.

    Last year he thanked the former New York Yankees catcher Yogi Berra, who is famous for profundities that include: "Baseball is 90 per cent mental; the other half is physical."

    Some people think Berra "might be my speechwriter", Mr Bush said.

    And sometimes, Mr Bush gets the last laugh.

    Last month he complained that Saddam had "side-stepped, crawfished, wheedled" out of international agreements.

    Injecting crawfish into the Iraq debate brought him ridicule, but critics should have taken a look at Webster's International Dictionary. There, one definition of "crawfish" is "to back out", which Mr Bush clearly meant.

    So, do not misunderestimate this president.
