BUSHISM OF THE DAY
:
 
THANKS ANTONIO, UH, ANTHONY, UH.. FOR THE COUP THING!
"Bush was asked in an interview by ``Dateline NBC'' if any White House invitation to Scalia could reinforce the notion that the conservative judges on the nation's high court handed him the presidency.

``I don't know,'' he replied. ``I do like him. (But) I guess we're going to have to scratch him off the invitation list now,'' he replied to interviewer Tom Brokaw.

When his wife Laura Bush protested that it was perfectly normal for the president and first lady to host the Supreme Court, Bush interrupted, saying, ``He's just teasing...''

``He was just trying to make sure Anthony didn't get a good meal,'' Bush said, correcting himself quickly, ``Antonio.''
