This Could Be
The Legacy He's Dreaming About!!
Let's face it: George Bush is desperately searching for a legacy - ANY legacy. History's greatest diplomatic dimwit is willing to put his stamp on anything so that he won't be known merely as the President who craved war. This lamest of lame ducks has safely hidden his gubernatorial records (as governor of Texas) in his father's presidential library so that nothing more could sully the Bush name.
Ever-considerate San Francisco is now willing to help the President achieve his goal. This item hit newsprint yesterday:
(From SFist, Mar. 31, 2008)
Looking to honor the forty-third President of the United States of America, George W. Bush, the recently formed Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco is looking to change the name of the Oceanside Wastewater Treatment Facility. It seems the group would like to rename the SF Zoo adjacent facility to the "George W Bush Sewage Plant."
The local grassroots movement, helmed by "Wayne Pickering," is proposing an ordinance initiative for the November 2008 San Francisco ballot in order to get the poop/pee/vomit plant's title changed. Why? To honor our current leader of the free world with an "appropriate and enduring legacy...As we near the end of George W Bush's presidency, we think it is important to select a fitting monument to this president's work. On matters ranging from foreign relations to fiscal and environmental stewardship, no other president in American history has accomplished so much in such a short time. To honor George W Bush for his eight years of public service, the Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco is sponsoring a ballot initiative this November in San Francisco. It reads
..."Should the City and County of San Francisco rename the Oceanside Wastewater Treatment Facility the George W. Bush Sewage Plant?"
More high-caliber volunteers are being called upon to help promote this ballot initiative (after all, six people - so far - cannot accomplish this lofty task by themselves). To sign up for this worthy cause just click here.
This is one Bush project I heartily support.
