Lagniappe - Well, I've stumbled across all by myself a great "Bushism" - always good for a laugh. Apparently, in defending his absurd $670+ billion tax cut plan, Bush railed against his critics who say the plan favors the rich by complaining about the "class war of politics". What the hell does this mean? Does he mean that the actual various social classes are fighting a war of politics? I think he means the "politics of class warfare" in which politicians who may or may not come from a particular social "class", use the divisions between the classes (i.e. "class warfare"), in their political jockeying. Come on, Bush! Get your turns of phrases correct! Show some intelligence, for goodness' sake!
