A Stringer of Large-Mouthed Asses

Several of my distant brethren on the far left of blogosphere this morning have gone out of their way to prove that the “reality-based community” is leaking reality at an every increasing rate, as they went postal over a flippant comment President Bush made about—wait for it—fishing.

Yes, while being interviewed for the German magazine Bild, the interviewer asked about his best and worst moments as President.

Bush gave the rather obvious answer that the 9/11/01 terrorist attack was his worst, while his best moment was:

"I would say the best moment was when I caught a 7 1/2-pound largemouth bass on my lake," Bush said, laughing.

Believe it or not, the Party of the Perpetually Peeved found a way to have a complete hissy fit over this, as well.


So, let me get this straight. The man has been President for five freaking years. And the thing that he thinks is his best moment in office as President of the US of A is catching a big fish in his lake.


Most Americans couldn't name a best moment for Bush either. But he's been President for over five years and his best moment was catching a fish? That says a lot. He really is the WORST PRESIDENT EVER…

And the geniuses over at Hullabaloo, well, they smell conspiracy:

With all the daily opportunities available to do such good for your fellow country-folk, and the world, the only thing Bush specifically mentioned that made him happy is catching a big fish. In his own lake. Which could very well be deliberately stocked with big fish.

Mercy (or as they say mercí).

I'm certain they'll soon be petitioning Russ Feingold to try to impeach Bush, claiming no doubt, that using a Tiny Torpedo without Congressional authorization is an illegal act of war.

As nutty as these folks get over a joke Bush made about fishing, it's no wonder the American voter won't trust them with football.

I'd find it memorable to latch onto a 7 1/2 pounder myself. It would be a good day.

"most wonderful moment" questions are fatuous and undeserving of respectful reply. It is to Bush's credit that he came up with a non-answer which was humorous without being overtly insulting.

Dang right, fishing beats the crap out of anything and everything one can do in a paid job.

Being president ain't what people think. The President is really the "head butler". Good or bad, Bush at least knows the greatest pleasure in life, fishing, regardles of whether he stocks his lake with big fish.

Been a successful business man, and a professor and director at a University. I'll take fishing any day.
