Depleted Brain Cells, Or More Evidence Of A Phony?

One could pick 100 people at random from the El Paso or San Antonio telephone books, give them a call, and -- including Spanish language-only homes -- find no more than three people who couldn't tell you the name of "America's Team."

From the transcript of President Bush's speech Friday welcoming the Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers to the White House: "I want to -- look, I was a Texas Cowboy fan, you know. (Laughter.) Dallas Cowboy fan..."

I wonder if the gooper apologists will counter that Bush was a professional baseball owner, and thus, naturally wouldn't be expected to know the name of the flagship NFL franchise in the state.

Thanks to Tom Shoop's Fedblog for finding this.

He lived in Dallas for how many years? Not sure how one even makes that slip, having lived in Dallas or elsewhere. Maybe he was thinking of the Texas Longhorns? Who knows?

Duh-bya strikes again!

To be fair, W does exhibit many of the textbook symptoms of Wernicke's aphasia.

His odd manner of speaking--while sometimes uproariously funny--could be the result of brain damage, possibly due to his history of alcohol (and god knows what else) abuse.

Regardless of the cause, he doesn't present the most statesmanlike public appearences.
