    "There's an old saying in Tennessee -- I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee -- that says: Fool me once, shame on [pause] shame on you. [Pause] Fool me [long, uncomfortable, agonizing pause] you can't get fooled again."

    -- Bush at East Literature Magnet School in Nashville yesterday

    I don't know if you actually saw this but it was rather weird. I mean this is a very well known saying. What was wrong with him? Was he nervous? did he have a bagel stuck in his throat?

  2. I'm surprised you missed this Babak. Obviously, considering the similarity of the text, his mind wandered to the Who song "Won't get fooled again" and he got caught up in the moment, started thinking back to his partying days in the 70's, then got choked up remembering Entwistle's recent death/overdose....you know just a whole flood of cotton picken emotions all at once there up in front of all those people...must have been tough for him.
  3. There is a whole book full of funny/stupid things he said. So yes, people are catching "this":)
  4. i caught that shit.... funny huh... cant pull one over that kinda smarts. I would guess he didnt write that speach.
