“I don’t know what that’s from but I don’t like quotes.”

KaboomWe were told that cowboy Bush had made the world hate America, but that a President Obama would make the world like us and trust us again.

NPR Freudian Slip?

Heard on the local NPR station this morning, the first day of their fund drive:

“. . . and your guilt—uh, your gift—will help cover the cost of that . . . .”
