Wednesday, June 16, 2004 Books | The inner W.: "Frank, who considers Bush to be 'an intelligent person whose access to his intelligence [is] hampered by his disabilities' (he suspects attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and dyslexia),"

As the sister of two dyslexics, and the daughter, niece and granddaughter of dyslexics, all I have to say, is "Heck yeah." The way GWB parses words and sentences screams (SCREAMS!) of the kind of lexical disorders my siblings and mother face. The word starts out one way and ends up another (subliminable, misunderstimate, etc.) and the moments when he just stops short, those are the moments when his brain freezes up, like a computer, as it runs too many programs (word access, panic, fear, verbalization, etc.) at once. Dude: Retire and get a tutor. Come back when you have a triumphant tale of conquering your disability.
