Bush Speak: An Interview with Mark Crispin Miller
The author of "The Bush Dyslexicon" sees more in Bush's verbal tics and grammatical bungles than just plain idiocy. He credits Bush for speaking a language television producers and talk show hosts can understand: one of superfice and shallowness, of one-liners and aw-shucks answers.

Read Bush quotes assembled by Bush Watch, which describes "Bushlexia" as "a combination of dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, apraxia, illiteracy, ignorance, laziness, passive-aggressiveness, and an arrogant attitude of privilege."

Bushonics Speakers Strike Back
