Bushisms 2001

Бушизмы, или перлы Джорджа Буша-младшего, как мне кажется, очень полезны для изучающих английский язык. Полезны в том плане, что учат, как нельзя говорить и тренируют внимательность и сообразительность, заставляя задуматься, какой же всё-таки смысл скрывался за грамматическими, стилистическими и прочими ошибками Буша.
