That sounded like a line from a skit on SNL.

"I stand by all the misstatements that I've made".

'I have made good judgements in the past. I have made good judgements in the future".

"Neither in French nor in English nor in Mexican".

“ On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Given that the pope is god's PR man on earth, isn't anything he says ''awesome'' by definition?

I remember a quote where he went to Brazil and said something like, "Oh, you have black ones too?"

Re: RIP Bush-isms (2000-2008)

Based on some of the nonsense that's been written on this forum, I'd be reluctant to criticize President Bush's alleged "Bushisms," what's that proverb about those who live in glasshouses and yet throw stones ? I mean, the man is undoubtedly imperfect, as are all human beings, however I'd question whether MTF is the elite committee that should be entrusted with the duty of slandering him for his vernacular.

Have a little humility -- many of you are no better than George Bush in the linguistics department.

Some of these people aren't even native English speakers. And as I've said before, I don't write here the same way I write a paper for English Comp.
