Eloquence... and the opposite

MoDo vents in her latest piece, "Message: I Can't":

There's nothing more pathetic than watching someone who's out of touch feign being in touch. On his fifth sodden pilgrimage of penitence to the devastation he took so long to comprehend, W. desperately tried to show concern. He said he had spent some "quality time" at a Chevron plant in Pascagoula and nattered about trash removal, infrastructure assessment teams and the "can-do spirit."

"We look forward to hearing your vision so we can more better do our job," he said at a briefing in Gulfport, Miss., urging local officials to "think bold," while they still need to think mold.

"Sodden pilgrimage of penitance." Wow. A lot more better than.... oh, screw it.

Sure, sure. the ability to put together sentences is not at the top of the list of qualifications for President for most people. But Shrub's language deficit isn't an outlier -- it is a damned good predictor of his incompetence in pretty much every other sphere.

America, we can do more better.
