Miss Underestimated

I didn't realized there was actually a book that uses that horrible neologism "misunderestimated" as a title. When I mentioned it to James, he said, "that sounds like a drag queen!"

There really is a book, titled Misunderestimated: The President Battles Terrorism, John Kerry, and the Bush Haters by a "reporter" for the Rev. Moon-owned Washingon Times.

Hear that sound? It's the sound of all of our IQs plummeting.

More on the man who cannot speak can be found here. Also an article from The Observer gives us a choice quote from Karen Hughes:

"I remember one time he had mispronounced one of his words," she said, looming over the podium. "It was not the time he said 'subliminable' or 'strategery.' This time, it was 'misunderestimate.' He said it three times, so I kinda had to point it out to him." She paused to let the friendly laughter wash over her. "The same morning, he had called the terrorists 'folks.' And it fell to me to say, 'You know, Mr. President, uh, these are trained killers, I'm not sure you really want to be calling them 'folks.'"


UPDATED: Here is a nice quote from Condoleezza Rice:

I think that anybody who misunderestimates this president is going to have egg on their face in a few years. People ought to go back and look at Harry Truman, because thatÂ’s another president who was misunderestimated.
