Trending in my world just now! The urge to revisit “they misunderestimated me” just returned…

How many still remember “our enemies are so innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.” (Dateline Washington, D.C., August 5, 2004).

Or, this rather worrying, and sadly blissfully ignorant, view of Africa?

“We spent a lot of time talking about Africa, as we should. Africa is a nation that suffers from incredible disease.” (Dateline Gothenburg, Sweden, June 14, 2001).

And was this the African hangover?

“Do you have blacks, too?” (Question put to then Brazilian President Fernando Cardoso, Washington, D.C., November 8, 2001).
