Quote Of The Day

From Lexington, The Economist:

A fool of a justice of the peace in Louisiana refused to marry a biracial couple. He said he was concerned for the children.

A White House spokesman, asked about the case, quipped: “I’ve found that, actually, the children of biracial couples can do pretty good.”

Yeah, it’s a pretty funny quip.

But how do you get a job as a WH spokesman if you can’t speak English properly?

Then again, the last 8 years proved that mastery of the language is not as important as you’d think…

    I preferred the other quip: “Maybe he’s afraid the kids will grow up to be President.” ;-)

    Yes, the last 8 years showed that mastery of the language is not as important as you’d think.

    Just as the past 10 months have shown that mastery of the language is not at all helpful.

    Actually, all White House spokespeople are under orders to make deliberate errors to enhance the appearance of Barack Obama as an eloquent speaker.

    No, I think that this is really a bone thrown to the teachers.

    It illustrates just how ineffective the modern education system really is.

    Of course, the pretzel logic on display is perfectly representative of the white house approach to most everything.

    H-i-g-h-l-y incompetent.
