Calif. group proposes George W. Bush Sewage Plant
By MICHELLE LOCKE – 1 day ago

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A California group submitted a proposal Monday to rename a sewage treatment plant after President Bush, calling the initiative a fitting tribute to the outgoing chief executive and the "mess" he'll leave behind.

The Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco wants to switch the name of the Oceanside Water Pollution Control Plant to the George W. Bush Sewage Plant.

Supporters hoping to put the issue on the November ballot turned in more than 10,000 signatures to San Francisco election officials, organizer Brian McConnell said. The measure needs just over 7,000 valid names to qualify and McConnell expects to find out later this month whether they made it.

Proponents of the renaming plan see it as fitting tribute to a president they contend has plumbed the depths of incompetence.

"We think that it's important to remember our leaders in the right historical context," said McConnell, a member of the group that was formed after friends came up with the renaming idea.

"In President Bush's case, we think that we will be cleaning up a substantial mess for the next 10 or 20 years," he said. "The sewage treatment facility's job is to clean up a mess, so we think it's a fitting tribute."

The "mess," as supporters of the plan see it, includes the aftermath of the Iraq war and what they see as a neglect of domestic economic issues.

"What we're really doing is symbolizing the fact that as he leaves office, we'll begin the process of basically repairing damage and rebuilding our country's reputation," he said.
But others think the plan reeks.

The chairman of the San Francisco Republican Party has promised to fight the measure if it does make the ballot.

A call by The Associated Press to White House press officials was not returned. But Patrick Dorinson, a former spokesman for the California Republican Party now running a communications firm in Sacramento, called the measure "a horrible idea" that is "childish and it's stupid."

"This is why San Francisco is considered wacky," Dorinson said. "It makes me ashamed to be a San Franciscan if this is all they've got time to do."

San Francisco Public Utilities Commission spokesman Tony Winnicker says officials have bigger issues to deal with than the proposed initiative. He defended Oceanside as anything but a symbol of inadequacy.

"The plant that they're seeking to rename really offers extraordinary environmental benefits. Without it, raw sewage and storm water would flow into the bay and the oceans and the streets. That's not our understanding of what the authors of this initiative believe the current president has delivered," Winnicker said.

Still, he said, the commission is "trying to take it in stride and understand the humor behind it."

Why is it that Democrats do spiteful things like this? I have never once seen such a shameful idea from a Republican. Truly pathetic.

The Democrat party has completely lost it's sense of decency. They are nothing but a socialist party anymore. You liberals only think your liberals, but your not! You are mean nasty hateful people that are too ignorant to even see it. How sad for you...

Close, but actually most of the gang members you mention are from Africa, not South America.

But then again, to you, everyone is "the bad guy"

Personally, I think it is absolutely disgraceful. Whether or not you like the President, the office itself is a prestigious office and holds the most powerful person in the world. What does that say about us the citizens, if we don't hold that office to the highest standards? We voice our displeasure by the pen at the voting booth, not by naming some cesspool after him or her.

I never cared for Clinton but he was the President and therefore, entitled to respect IMO. Even though I didn't care for him, I would never in a million years consider doing something like this. It's childish and petty and cheapens the meaning of being the President in the first place. It really pisses me off that this is how childish people who disagree with someone act. We will never be a nation united if we continue down this path and that is really saddening IMO.

Pathetic....no matter what side of the argument you are on this is simply pathetic. We could come up with some great come backs for Bill, Jimmy, and the like but we have more dignity than that. It is funny how those that troll in the sewer want to spread it to all around. I would think that the city would have bigger matters than trashing a President to deal with...but after all look what Nancy Polosi is up too.....same crap different day. But hey look at it this way, if she is distracted by Bush maybe she will not have time to turn us in to The Democratic Republic of Amerika.....

Since we're cutting and pasting,this will suit you just fine......

Do you know what happened back in 1850, 158 years ago?

1. California became a state.

2. The state had no electricity.

3. The state had no money.

4. Almost everyone spoke Spanish.

5. There were gunfights in the streets.

So basically, it was just like California is today, except the women had real titz and the men didn't hold hands.You're pathetic.

Bart,

If YOU choose to held hands with other men, that's your choice!

Don't know why you want to advertise that, though!
