“Mistakes Were Made”

“MISTAKES WERE MADE”….Matt Yglesias already pointed this out when Alberto Gonzales said it yesterday, but now his boss has followed suit:

President Bush said today he is “not happy” about how the Justice Department handled the dismissal of eight U.S. attorneys last year, and said Atty. Gen. Alberto R. Gonzales has “got some work up there” in better explaining the events to Congress.

“Mistakes were made, and I’m frankly not happy about it,” Bush said during a joint news conference with Mexican President Felipe Calderon in Merida, Mexico.

What a couple of morons. Do they really have no idea why that phrase is infamous?
