Bush: Flushed with Success

A group calling themselves the Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco is trying to get an initiative on the November ballot to name a local sewage plant after President G. W. Bush. They call it “an appropriate honor for a truly unique president,”  but please don’t ask me what kind of cheek in which they have their tongue firmly planted.

The idea was hatched in a bar, naturally. And just as apropos, the group wants to celebrate inauguration day — when Bush leaves office — by having people flush hundreds of thousands of San Francisco toilets at the same time.

UPDATE: A spokesman for the sewage plant says that while they understand the humorous intent of the endeavor, the award-winning facility has been efficient at keeping the streets and ocean clean, thus the plant should be “the last place” the group should use to make a negative statement about Bush.
