Residents of San Francisco have a big decision ahead of them. Come November, many will be voting for George W. Bush.
No, Obama hasn’t picked Bush to be his Vice-President. It seems some want to rename the water pollution control plant (that’s a sewage plant for those of you like me who come from a small town) after him.
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 public utilities commission spokesman had this to say about the idea:
The plant that they’re seeking to rename really offers extraordinary environmental benefits.
So there you have it. The people of San Francisco can now use the power of the ballot box to turn Bush into an environmentalist.
Tune in tomorrow for a different take on this story.
