Embracing One's Shortcomings and Making With The Joke-y

"Someday you will appreciate the grammar and verbal skills you learned here." (Laughter and applause.) "And if any of you wonder how far a mastery of the English language can take you, just look what it did for me." (Laughter and applause.)

-G.W.B. speaking at the commencement ceremony at Calvin College last month.

Lately I just try to tune that guy out but THAT, my friends, was a good one. (I know I'm late to the punch but I just heard the sound byte today. Like I said- I'm usually quick with the mute button.) Also good: The "dissassemble" means "not to tell the truth" line from last week.

I laugh to keep from crying.
