George Bush and Kermit Ruffins

Jun 22, 2007 by

Picture the White House South Lawn. Now envision it full of Mardi Gras themed decor and New Orleans music. That was the scene this week as Dubya the Incoherent not only avoided any mention of the state of New Orleans, his promises to the Gulf Coast or his abyssmal failures here but also levied a racist insult on one of our best loved musical luminaries.

I want to thank our Chef, 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.)

From the Official White House Transcript. Hat Tip to Slate for pointing it out.

I am beyond words. The C Student In Chief underwhelms me constantly with his idiocy and lack of tact. (NOt to mention corruption, neglect of his duties, reckless endangerment of the population f the Gulf Coast, etc, etc, etc….) Our musical geniuses are NOT garbage collectors!
Mr. Bush, you are cordially invited to go to hell.
