Déjà vu -- Bush opined again, yesterday, about "the Internets."
From the White House Web site:

"You thought I was kind of doing one of these -- (laughter) -- Washington, D.C. dodges. (Laughter.) I talk to a lot of families who have got a loved one in Iraq or Afghanistan, or anywhere else in this global war on terror, and they are in constant communication with their loved one. That's amazing, isn't it. You've got a kid in Iraq who is emailing mom daily, talking about the realities of what he or she sees. Information is moving -- you know, nightly news is one way, of course, but it's also moving through the blogosphere and through the Internets. It's amazing how many emails I see from people that are writing in what they think and what they hear."

You know, if you examine communities on the World Wide Web through a more anthropological or sociological perspective, one COULD argue that there different people use and experience the Internet in different ways, and indeed we could describe these ways as different "Internets".

But, I doubt Bush has been reading much Markham or Herman recently.

YES!!! I was SO WORRIED that usage of the word "internets" would go out of style, as it was just a one time thing.

It's an official word now, in my book.

Calling Bush an idiot over his use of "internets" is like telling someone who has not bathed in over a month that his kneepits stink.

Calling Bush an idiot over his use of "internets" is an insult to idiots.

You ever wonder if every time someone uses the word "internets" in an ironic sense and Bush notices it just gives him further confirmation that his use is correct?

Or maybe it's a snarky White House intern playing a joke on the boss.
