Kelly's at the dentist so it's me trying to get Kaelyn to take her mid-day nap. I have the presidential news conference on in the background and I have to admit it's painful. I honestly believe that W is an intelligent man, but he comes off like a small-church deacon running a business meeting. No wonder The Daily Show has so much material.
Just an example: he referred to his office as the "o-VAL office," stressing the second syllable instead of the first. It was extremely southern, if not hick. He also continually called it the "Korean PeninSHula." I'm all for being personable, but it's not very comforting when discussing possible nuclear war.
It just reminds me of the whole Bill Clinton fiasco. You can get away with a lot if you can speak well in public.
