The only numbers our imbecile-in-chief is able to add to faster than the death toll in Iraq — surpassing 1,000 U.S. military deaths on Tuesday, not to mention tens of thousands of Iraqi casualties — are his verbal gaffes, also known as Bushisms.

"Too many good docs are getting out of business. Too many ob/gyn's aren't able to practice their, their love for women all across this country," Bush said.

Apparently, the carefully culled supporters Bush misled were chosen for their ability to stifle laughter.

During the latest Tour of Distortions campaign stop in Missouri, Bush was railing disingenuously against medical malpractice suits, claiming they're responsible for rising health-care costs.

They're not, the government itself says. A year ago, The Washington Post wrote:

In Pennsylvania and West Virginia, for example, two of 19 states designated by the AMA as being in a "full-blown liability crisis," the number of doctors per capita has actually increased in the past six years, according to the GAO.

Indeed, not being able to practice that kind of love would be a tragedy.

Yet Bush is wrong again.
