All deeply hilarious and very good for alleviating the workday (provided you have perfected the art of silent, desk-based laughter).

But we use to think Bushisms were funny. I used to LOVE bushisms.

Surely, I thought, the fact that there is a brand of humour named after this man would be the ultimate sign of his unrelenting stupidity. But perhaps it was distracting – a coping mechanism when futile anger and fury became exhausting.

Is it possible the humour-element will prevent a proper appreciation of the frightening danger of Vice President Palin?

Yes, Bush she is funny. But Bush she is only funny because he she is breathtakingly, remorselessly, unfailingly unqualified.

And this is not an abstract debate - there is no shortage of examples to evidence the results of an unqualified leader at this time.
