Quote of the Day

QUOTE OF THE DAY…. I’m pretty sure the former president meant “authoritative.”

“I’m going to put people in my place, so when the history of this administration is written at least there’s an authoritarian voice saying exactly what happened,” Bush said.

Every day, I try to take a moment to appreciate the fact that Bush is no longer the president. But when it comes to entertainment, I’ll concede that I kind of miss his hilarious verbal miscues.
