THE PLANK MARCH 20, 2007

Department Of Tortured Metaphors

From the Miami Herald, here's President Bush--he of the 30 percent approval rating--at a White House ceremony yesterday honoring the University of Florida's national championship football team:

"Instead of, like, discouraging them that they got the bad deal when it came to the schedule, all that did was cause them to play harder,'' Bush said. "And it put them in pretty good stead going into the championship game [against Ohio State]. Like you might remember, all the pregame polls said you couldn't win. So much for polls."

Bush went on to say that he was going to spend the rest of his presidency taking things one game at a time and proving the BCS voters wrong.
