Dubaya’s Last Presidential Act

The press was too busy covering Barack Obama's inauguration to follow this one:

Bush Repeals English Language

 

In what he hoped would be the capstone to his eight years as President, George @. Bush today signed an executive order repealing the English language

Scrawling his name on the official document, Mr. Bush said that in abolishing English, he had vanquished his "greaterest enemy."

For Mr. Bush, the executive order represents the realization of a longstanding dream that began in 2001 when he declared an official War on Grammar.

The President followed up that declaration of war in 2003 when he signed an executive order canceling the agreement between nouns and verbs..

Mr. Bush's decision to repeal the English language could complicate matters for his successor, President Barack Obama, who is scheduled to deliver his inaugural address tomorrow, presumably in English. 

Mr. Bush's executive order also drew high praise from a fellow Republican, Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska: "Being that the English language can and has been used in confusing and also too in harming ordinary Americans, knowing that it no longer can or will be used in doing that is something positive that this is doing also."
