Nuclear/Nucular

President Bush (43) got a lot of grief for routinely mispronouncing “nuclear” as “nucular,” yet I’ve never heard anyone complain about Jack Bauer making the same mistake. 

If President Bush could break people’s necks with his legs, would he have been excused from criticism, too? 

I guess, in thinking about it, that Jack Bauer kicks so much ass that even I–the word police that I am–am willing to forgive this.  Well, mostly.
