The Google

To Americans everything is serious, but nothing is hopeless. To the English everything is hopeless, but nothing is serious. Or so I was told by a Nathan Lane look-alike, in Universal Providers, one of the funky, but affordable furniture dealers along Golborne Road on Saturday. And after years of intense (often Guinness fuelled) ruminations on the Yank vs. Brit cultural divide, this sounded the most inspired to date. That is, until I came to see Bush's latest accident on YouTube. And then I remembered just how serious and hopeless things can get. Well, apart from on the interweb, the place where the world unites in free thought - it is hardly surprising Dubya can't find his way there.

One of the things I’ve used on the Google is to pull up maps. It’s very interesting to see — I’ve forgot the name of the program but you get the satellite

Er, that program would be Google Earth, sir.

You know, the planet you’re currently living in…

May every word that any of you have ever said be taken note of and constantly thrown back in your face. No cameras and reporters are following you around constantly waiting for you to trip up so that they can crucify you to the masses…if so, then I don’t think any of us would have a very large fan base. If you don’t like an elected official, then do yourself a favor and join the campaign of someone that you do like, volunteer, and most importantly vote so that the next leader will be someone of whom you approve.

I’ve seen a few blogs point to this TV clip of President Bush relating how he likes to use “The Google.” It’s followed by a snarky remark suggesting the search engine is on “the Internets.” While I think it’s pretty funny, I also tend to agree with the theory that the president’s malaprop endears him to his base. Stuffy East Coast inte;lectuals like me laughing at his abuse of the English language only polarizes them more.
