When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Augment the English Language

What does George Bush do when he feels like no one agrees with him — y'know, like when he is party to a state-owned UAE venture taking over port operations at 6 Eastern seaboard ports?

He coins a new phrase. In this case, he's invented the phrase Great British.

I love the news sources that try to save Bush by implying he meant great British.

No, he meant Great British.

I suppose you never made a mistake either...

I make my mistakes by the bushel, I just don't make the linguistic ones with quite the same panache as our Spoonerist-in-Chief.
