Sewage Plant To Be Named After G.W. Bush

Tue Jul 08, 2008 10:34 am

A very special farewell gift: George W. Bush Sewage Plant is the name that might adorn a new facility in San Francisco. Brian McConnell from the Presidential Memorial Commission: "It is important to remember a president in the right context. In the case of Bush we have to clean up a big mess in the coming years."

Ironically in his last days Bush suddenly wants to something against global warming in earnest. Thats also in the news today.

That or Donald Rumsfeld. I don't think anyone will disagree Bush is a special one, but Remsfeld was the one that shit all over the military in the beginning of the war.

I think naming a sewerage treatment plant is too good for GWB. It is sad that a President can be so bad that public facilities can't be named after them or only as a joke.

There's a lot of stuff he wants to do in his last days. The Daily Show ran a great segment on it:

Sorry for the double thread.

Anyhow, this will be a tough choice for me.
A sewage plant in his honor is appropriate.
However this plant works well unlike Bush and would be an insult to those that run this plant efficiently.

Besides, if we want to honor Bush with a sewage plant, wouldn't the infamous one at our military base in Kandahar, Afghanistan be more appropriate? They built it too close to the base and the whole base smells like a port-a-potty and there's all sorts of stuff in the air.

It's kind of funny when you consider that, other than having the word "sewage" in its name, this facility is really the opposite of everything this group is trying to connect with the Bush name.

It would have been funnier and more clever if they had come up with a toilet paper named Bush, or something along those lines.

"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.

I've always thought that naming things after living politicians (IAH, DCA, Brendan Byrne Arena, etc.) is a bad thing. I may not like GWB (the president, not the bridge), but this is in bad taste.

Wait some amount of time until after the person is dead (let's say 20 years) before you name anything after them (unless the person is paying for the naming rights).
