The George Bush Sewer

by | 19th, July 2008

A GROUP in San Francisco want a lasting memorial to George W. Bush. Condoleezza Rice has a ship – or not:

Reagan has his highways. Lincoln has his memorial. Washington has the capital, and a state, too. But President George W. Bush may soon be the sole president to have a memorial named after him that you can contribute to from the bathroom.From the Department of Damned-With-Faint-Praise, a group going by the regal-sounding name of the Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco is planning to ask voters here to change the name of a prize-winning water-treatment plant on the shoreline to the George W. Bush Sewage Plant.

The plan – hatched, naturally, in a bar – would place a vote on the November ballot to provide “an appropriate honor for a truly unique president.”
