Dishwatery Utterances

"The cheek of every American must tingle with shame as he reads the silly, flat and dishwatery utterances of the man who has to be pointed out to intelligent foreigners as the President of the United States."

-From an article in the Chicago Times, on Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, the day after he delivered the 272 word oration. Source: Wikipedia article on the Gettysburg Address.
