We've gotten a couple of complaints about yesterday's rush transcript of Bush's speech on the economy. One reader wrote to correct us on the joke "like white on my administration."
while very funny, kind of an obvious not accurate joke against republicans. technically speaking (color and gender) bush's cabinet is the most diverse in history. might [also] be the most scary, but that's another matter all together.
We think this correspondent has an excellent point. The intern who provided us his notes on the speech will be beaten.
Another reader, apparently even more on the ball, espied lines such as "I will state the obvious and wait for applause. Watch this: I will protect America," and did the work the intern didn't: "He didn't say anything like that--not according to the transcript from Federal News Service."
The intern will be forced to listen to Air America.
