Wierdest. Quote. Ever.

Thanks to Keith Olberman of MSNBC's Countdown, I was alerted to a truly stunning quote last night. G.W. Bush in Poplar Bluff, MO. September 6, 2004:

...Too many good docs are getting out of business. Too many OB/GYNs aren't able to practice their love with women all across this country. ...

Not being an obvious one word substitution error, and being so blasted strange anyway, I don't know what to make of this quote. If you saw the video clip, it was even more disconcerting, because he pauses before the word 'practice.' It sounded like he was searching for something to say, and then rattles off the rest of the sentence like it was intentional.

My recommendation to Bush's speechwriters is to keep him far away from any discussion of gynecology.

I assume, looking at Google News instances of similar lines (I didn't notice if they were from Bush or other people), that the line was supposed to be "practice the field they love."

Whatever he meant... that was funny. One of these a week should be just about the perfect number---to send him back to Texas. And anyway, they deserve him.

So, it was supposed to be "practice the field they love with women"? You have to admit, that isn't much better ;)
