The original Bush, I'd say. WTF.

No, the Palin comparison is apt.

To be fair, I always thought 'potatoe' might be a regional thing. I often spell "theatre", "dialogue", etc. And countries where it's commonplace to spell words such as "colour". But at least I do know those are all valid, I have no idea where he got his alternate spelling.

I still have a book of all these quotes, this man was a gold mine. I'm particularly fond of, "It's time for mankind to enter this solar system," but it's hard to choose.

Or when he was trying to say, "A mind is a terrible thing to waste," and it came out as, "What a waste it is to lose one's mind -- or not to have a mind. How true that is."

"Hawaii has always been a very pivotal role in the Pacific. It is IN the Pacific. It is a part of the United States that is an island that is right here."
To his credit, though, he sounds very drunk in the Hawaii one.

"The Holocaust was an obscene period in our nation's history. I mean in this century's history. But we all lived in this century. I didn't live in this century."

I actually have to come to Quayle's defense re. Palin. When he botched a phrase, you could almost see the wheels in his head, desperately trying to figure out how he'd gone wrong and correct it, tragically never catching up to his mouth and larynx. In the infamous United Negro College Fund botch, you can just hear the internal monologue ". . . no, that's not right, no! Fix it, fix--no! That's worse! Do a charming segue out! Oh God!"

His speech disasters are articulate, in other words. Whereas any time Palin talks it's just this dead list of things that have to come out of her mouth and ugh ugh ugh.

Quayle was embarrassed by his ignorance because he knew leaders needed to be informed and articulate.

Palin uses it as a selling point because she believes certainty and cultural absolutism are more important than knowledge.

Ouch. I'd only heard of this and had never actually seen the clip. It's made even more painful to see that he's correcting a student's proper spelling with his misspelling.

Terrifying.

I love the British anchorman, chuckles snobbishly at the silly americans and then moves on to more important news. You don't see that kind of snootyness in the bbc anymore.

Well, yeah. Once you realize that these morons you chuckle at have the capability and the capacity to kill the entire planet a dozen times over, it gets a bit depressing.

One of my favourite George Carlin quotes is about Dan Quayle's wife: "I wouldn't fuck her with a stolen dick!"

Original Palin my ass. We were so lucky then.

From wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potato_(word)

The singular spelling variants "potato" vs. "potatoe" co-existed into the 19th century. In the 20th century "potato" came to be considered the correct singular, and "potatoe" considered a misspelling. The plural remains "potatoes'".

Curse his Victorian education!
