Stupid Shrub

Bush came to the Micron factory in Manassas Tuesday (Luke and I were outside and heard the helicopters as they arrived) and said to our city manager "Just fill the potholes. That is all I can say.". The thing is, we don't have potholes for more than about 20 hours. The city's website has a place right on the front page where you can report problems, including potholes, and potholes are filled within 24 hours of being reported. I don't know if he assumed there were potholes everywhere or just couldn't think of anything else to say to the manager, but it sure makes him look stupid.
