George W Bush sewage treatment plant

San Francisco residents are driving a petition to honor President Bush and rename a sewage treatment plant.

The plan – hatched, naturally, in a bar – would place a vote on the November ballot to provide “an appropriate honor for a truly unique president.”

Supporters say that they have plenty of signatures to qualify the initiative and that the renaming would fit in a long and proud American tradition of poking political figures in the eye.

The strongly liberal city just may get its way on the November ballot.

The renaming would take effect on Jan. 20, when a new president is sworn in. And regardless of the measure’s outcome, supporters plan to commemorate the inaugural with a “synchronized flush” of hundreds of thousands of toilets that would send a flood of water toward the plant, now named the Oceanside Water Pollution Control Plant.

“It’s a way of doing something physical that’s mentally freeing,” said Stacey Reineccius, 45, a supporter of the plan. “It’s a weird thing, but it’s true.”

A ‘synchronized flush’…. now there’s an idea, it could be very cathartic.
