Proving that liberals are way tuned in to the Internet, Bush’s “Need some wood?” comment during tonight’s debate has spawned an instant www.needsumwood.com web site. Laurel heard the site mentioned on Air America while driving home this evening and, thankfully, remembered that “some” was spelled just as Bush probably thinks it is, or we never would have found it.
Like many debate watchers I couldn’t understand what Kerry was getting at, and seemingly Bush didn’t either. Apparently in 2001 Bush did indeed get $84 in business income from his part ownership of a timber-growing enterprise. But this certainly wouldn’t make him a “small business owner” whose overall high income shouldn’t be taxed at a high rate, as the web site points out.
In honor of the latest Bushism, we've set up a site making fun of George Bush for his strange "Need some wood" comment. We've also set up a store at Cafe Press offering items for sale showing Bush with a wooden head. You can visit www.needsomewood.us. We hope you find this amusing. Let's put Bush on the defensive and make this the quote that follows him for the rest of the campaign! Remember to vote in November!
