an-tic-i-pa-tion

I think I have finally found Bush's "reasoning" behind his statement that "nobody anticipated the breaching of the levees" in New Orleans.

It's easy if you remember just how illiterate and dishonest the man is.

He meant that (although he and his administration had been warned that the city would be flooded) nobody "eagerly looked forward to" the breaching of the levees, not that nobody "predicted" the breaching of the levees, and he is using that deliberate confusion to deflect attention away from his own incompetence.

I think that when you look at this together with the previous post, you can see that it's much easier to lie without being detected when you use the same words that everybody else uses, but use them in a different manner from what the common interpretation is.


Folks, our country is in so much trouble that it is really beginning to scare the hell out of me. I thought it was bad before, but the pattern of "secret code" within the English language that is being used by far-right reichpublicans is horrifying.

"Last throes," "strict constructionists," and "Dred Scott," indeed.
