Me fail English? That's unpossible!

The text, in case you need to go over that humdinger again, via Ezra Klein, my blog crush:

"That's why I say I, like every American I'm speaking with, were ill about this position that we have been put in. Where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh, it's got to be about job creation, too. Shoring up our economy, and getting it back on the right track. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans, and trade -- we have got to see trade as opportunity, not as, uh, competitive, um, scary thing, but one in five jobs created in the trade sector today. We've got to look at that as more opportunity. All of those things under the umbrella of job creation."

I think the first requirement for a vice president should be a grasp of the English language, don't you? THEN maybe we can get into economics.

Maybe she was speaking in the tongues so frequently spoken at the church she attends.

  1. Given our current President, clearly a grasp of the English language is not a requirement to hold that office. Why would we hold the VP to a higher standard? :P
