Uniquely American

An exchange between George W. Bush and Mary Mornin, "a divorced, single mother with three grown, adult children," one of whom, Robbie, is "mentally challenged":
THE PRESIDENT: You work three jobs?

MS. MORNIN: Three jobs, yes.

THE PRESIDENT: Uniquely American, isn't it? I mean, that is fantastic that you're doing that. (Applause.) Get any sleep? (Laughter.) ("President Discusses Strengthening Social Security in Nebraska," February 4, 2005)

'i think a little duct tape or super glue would solve the problem momentarily.'

i think a little duct tape or super glue would solve the problem permanently. duct tape shut the mealy mouths of the american coup's top generals, super glue their thieving hands together, find the body of water their top clients polluted most, and drop kick them into it, former lower ninth ward residents standing by, lifeguards on duty.
