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.

This is Gonna be GOOD

At a private reception held at the White House with newly elected lawmakers shortly after the election, Bush asked [newly elected Virginia Senator Jim] Webb how his son, a Marine lance corporal serving in Iraq, was doing.

Webb responded that he really wanted to see his son brought back home, said a person who heard about the exchange from Webb.

“I didn’t ask you that, I asked how he’s doing,” Bush retorted, according to the source.

Webb confessed that he was so angered by this that he was tempted to slug the commander-in-chief, reported the source, but of course didn’t. It’s safe to say, however, that Bush and Webb won’t be taking any overseas trips together anytime soon.
I know the feeling, Senator.


Update: The more I think about this story, the more it pisses me off. What kind of glib, shallow douchebag says "I didn't ask you that" when a parent whose son is at war says he wants the troops brought home? The kind of glib, shallow douchebag whose own worthless spawn are cavorting around South America like the little Paris Hiltons they are while others are dying at war, I suppose. I mean, can you imagine any other president in history giving this kind of reponse to a soldier's father? He does deserve to get punched in the face. At minimum.

Washington Post confirms the story here.
