It's Foot-In-Mouth Time! Tell me if you've heard this oldie-but-goodie before. It's a real knee-slapper:

Remarks by President Bush at the Congressional Picnic

THE PRESIDENT:...I want to thank our Chef, [NOLA caterer] Paul Prudhomme, from New Orleans, Louisiana -- one of the great chefs in America.
Thanks for coming, Paul. (Applause.) I thank Tony Snow and his bunch of, well, mediocre musicians -- (laughter) -- no, great musicians. Beats Workin, thanks for coming. (Applause.) Kermit, come up here. Kermit, we're proud to have you.
MR. RUFFINS: Well, thanks for having us.

THE PRESIDENT: Kermit Ruffins and the Barbeque Swingers, right out of New Orleans, Louisiana. (Applause.)

MR. RUFFINS: Thank you. Thanks for having us. We're glad to be here.

THE PRESIDENT: Proud you're here. Thanks for coming. You all enjoy yourself. Make sure you pick up all the trash after it's over. (Laughter.) God bless you, and may God bless America. Thanks for coming. (Applause.)

Such finesse, such panache, such an a**hole.

He must have learned to assume the blackies would clean up from his mom.

Far be it from me to defend Cmdr. Gus McAwesome but it didn't happen.

If you go to the above URL, there is a link to a video. If you watch the video, you'll see that Bush does not direct that comment to Kermit Ruffins. Ruffins leaves the podium and Bush turns back to the crowd and makes a lame joke.

Thanks, Corinne! I'll check it out.

But the sad thing is...knowing Bush, it very well could have happened.

And you just know he was thinking it. After all, this is the guy who came out of Barbara and we all remember her sympathetic remarks about 'those people' after Katrina.

Where'd you find that picture of the foot? I want to make it into a t-shirt

Agreed, anon.

I looked up "foot in mouth" on Google images, I think. I did a bunch of searches, but that's what comes to mind.

But before you make a shirt, check out the possibility of a copyright on the photo.

Thanks for keeping us honest, anon. You never know when Melanie Morgan will read this and call Cliff on it. He's gone up against her and I'm sure she wants him dead.
