The Funniest Sentence I've Ever Read... 

Bush's Oratory Helps Maintain Support for War
With skillful use of language and images, President Bush and his aides have kept the American public from turning against the war in Iraq despite the swelling number of U.S. casualties there.
I never thought I would see "skillful use of language" and Bush in the same sentence.

"This has been tough weeks in that country." Bush, April 13th, 2004

"Obviously, I pray every day there's less casualty." Bush April 11th, 2004

"The march to war hurt the economy. Laura reminded me a while ago that remember what was on the TV screens — she calls me, 'George W.' — 'George W.' I call her, 'First Lady.' No, anyway — she said, we said, march to war on our TV screen." Bush March 11th, 2004

"God loves you, and I love you. And you can count on both of us as a powerful message that people who wonder about their future can hear." Bush, March 3rd 2004

"My views are one that speaks to freedom." Bush, January 29th, 2004

"Then you wake up at the high school level and find out that the illiteracy level of our children are appalling." Bush, January 23rd, 2004

Skillful use of language indeed.
