notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

More Bushisms

Inspired by Jeff's social security post below, I thought I'd share my all-time favorite dumb-ass things Bush has said. I was just going to leave a comment, but then it started getting too long. Let's face it, the man has uttered more idiocies than any one comment system can handle.

Unlike Jeff, I never tire of this game, nor do I find it to be a trite criticism. If a goddamned moron is going to be the leader of the free world, then we're at least entitled to laugh at the dumb fucking things that come out of his mouth, aren't we?

So here are my top three:

Number Three
Bush on medical malpractice:
Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB-GYNs aren't able to practice their love with women all across this country.

Number Two
Asked about what tribal sovereignty means in the 21st century, Bush give this insightful response:
Tribal sovereignty means that; it's sovereign. I mean, you're a — you've been given sovereignty, and you're viewed as a sovereign entity. And therefore the relationship between the federal government and tribes is one between sovereign entities.
(You've really got to hear the audio on that one to appreciate how badly he was floundering. The audience literally started laughing about halfway through his "answer." You can download a clip at the link above.)

And the most wonderful, dumbest thing he's ever said:
"Peeance freeance," as in:
A peeance freeance secure Iraq in the midst of the Middle East will have enormous historical impact.
