Re: Sayings that you hate now

Hmmm, I remembered previously reading that, while couldn't care less certainly appeared in British usage before could care less appeared in American usage, that couldn't care less didn't appear in American usage until after. However, you're probably right.

Still, given that it only appeared in American usage, it seems logical to conclude that it was more of a cultural thing, rather than just someone messing up.
