George W. Bush Sewage Treatment Plant One Step Closer To American Reality

Flag DayThe SFist just sent us this breaking news from San Francisco: “The ordinance initiative to changing the name of the Oceanside Wastewater Treatment Facility to the ‘George W Bush Sewage Plant’ will, in fact, be on the November ballot.” This is great news for everybody, as it will provide retaliatory amusement for San Francisco voters while confirming every “bunch-a gald-damned communist lezbo fruitcakes” wingnut cliche about Baghdad by the Bay.

    Nice jorb, San Fran. If this goes through, we New Yorkers will have to one-up them by renaming Staten Island after George W. Bush.

  2. Spence

    Great. Wanna take bets on whether this gets more coverage on Fox then the actual election?

  3. NotUrEvryDayWEzl

    [re=38766]jagorev[/re]: LMAO. I hoping we can tack on Dubya to National Airport to just remind everyone of the clusterfuck here.

  4. shortsshortsshorts

    We certainly beat Bush to being able to rightfully say “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.” HELL YA I’M CAMPAIGNING FOR THIS.

    [re=38775]NotUrEvryDayWEzl[/re]: I’m going to waste gallons of water and take laxatives the day this name-change prevails.

  5. BadNewsJack

    Damn pinko commies with their hackysacks and their protest music. Makes me wanna puke, which would then pass through the George W. Bush Sewage plant.

    Yes, I will proudly vote for this local initiative to honor our President.
    And every time I flush, I will salute and say: “You’re doing a heckuva job, brownie!”

  8. SayItWithWookies

    I’m sort of opposed to this idea — because the plant takes in filthy, stinky sewage and what comes out is actually cleaner and better. For some sort of plant to really deserve being named after Dubya, it would have to take in puppies and flowers and spew forth some sort of completely-unplanned-for toxic sludge.

  9. NoWireHangers

    This way when W is dead and the wingnuts try to do give him a big Reagan-style BJ, Americans will only have to follow their nose to remember what a foul President he was.

  10. Oscar Folsom Cleveland

    Hey New York, don’t waste Staten Island on Shrub! Why not rename a sewage plant in honor of Mrs Pelosi, who was gonna get us out of Irak, restore the constitution and bring peace, prosperity and progress? Instead, impeachment is out of the question and she signed off on torture and stuff.
    Cindy Sheehan for Congress!

    [re=38787]mookworthjwilson[/re]: [re=38789]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Wow, I didn’t consider it from that angle…

  12. NoWireHangers

    [re=38793]Oscar Folsom Cleveland[/re]: Ha. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahaha!

  13. KevoTron

    [re=38780]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: I heard SF is planning a synchronized flushing to commemorate this, true?[re=38769]EnBuenOra[/re]: They will call it Cheney.

  14. BobLoblawLawBlog

    [re=38789]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Well put. However, considering the amount of granola and arugula consumed per capita, that plant will be likely be more full of shit than any in history. So, it’s also kind of fitting.
    Even though I concede that it may not be perfect, I just have to say that it’s acts of dissent like this that make me obnoxiously proud to be a native of that freak show by the Bay. Back to snarking…

  15. shortsshortsshorts

    [re=38803]KevoTron[/re]: That is true. And it is awesome.

    On another note, many of the signs along “Bush Street” have been attacked with the “666 Insignia.”

  16. lumpenprole

    Do they have a proper name for that gigantic agglomeration of garbage in the south Pacific yet?

  17. anabellum

    [re=38806]ShortShadey[/re]: naw…too insulting to those of us who live in New Orleans…..and besides, we already have the George W. Bush Memorial Morgue…

  18. tunamelt

    [re=38832]lumpenprole[/re]: Oh, the trash vortex! According to the LAT Altered Ocean series the one south of Japan is the Western Garbage Patch and the one west of the US West Coast is the Eastern Garbage Patch.

  19. bitchincamaro

    [re=38793]Oscar Folsom Cleveland[/re]: Nancy Pelosi should have a brownfield named after her. What a cunt.

  20. Dr. Spaceman

    [re=38789]SayItWithWookies[/re]: A plant that runs on billions of other peoples dollars, and outputs, smog, lead, and dead bodies.

  21. Lionel Hutz Esq.

    If they really want to honor Bush, shouldn’t they refuse to treat the sewage and have the pipe coming out of the plant just spray it all over people?

  22. shortsshortsshorts

    [re=39081]Lionel Hutz Esq.[/re]: That was the first idea, but those crazy liberals said it would be an “environmental hazard.”


  23. Wee Mousie

    If this initiative goes through, Tony Bennett will have to change the lyrics to his signature song, “I Left My _______ In San Francisco.”

  24. regisgoat

    I think its a beautiful tribute to a president who has done so, so much to us, and I don’t see what the controversy is about it. I wish I lived in SF so I could vote for it. I live across the bay in Richmond where our sewage treatment plants only work part of the time, so I’d love to have an official president-honoring sewage treatment plant. Though considering that it’s taking turds and making usable water for gardening out of them, shouldn’t it be named after Karl “Turd Blossom” Rove?

  25. Mr-Clark

    Ken Layne,

    So, we are a little progressive here in San Francisco. Bush was special and we already have a Bush Street. I am definitely voting for it. If they have a ceremony and the Mayor invites him, I’ll bet he comes. President Bush has been in San Francisco ultimately using that facility and this is his chance at a positive legacy here in the city…well, as close to it as possible.

    Sincerely and respectfully,
