Turd Blossom

I cannot believe people in this country sometimes. Some newspaper editors have their knickers in a knot over Gary Trudeau's use of the term "turd blossom" (in reference to Karl Rove) in an upcoming "Doonesbury" strip (click here).

For Pete's sake.

"Turd Blossom" seems pretty mild in comparison to some of the epithets that have been used for President Bush and his supporters. In addition, a fairly cursory Google quickly reveals fairly solid documentation that "Turd Blossom" is a nickname that Bush himself gave to Rove.

Given the crap that is on television at all hours of the day and night, "Turd Blossom" is a relief. It's almost poetic.

How do you like them road apples?
