The Security of Our Peanuts

OK, I know that President Bush is a rather polarizing figure in the world of politics (whoa, that was enlightening), that he can come off as a complete goof, and that his policies have raised the ire of folks from both sides of the aisle.

That being said, the guy can deliver a funny line every so often. In last week's Presidential Radio Address he had the following comment on Congress' plan to include earmarks in the latest war spending proposal:
The Democrats loaded up their bills with billions of dollars in domestic spending completely unrelated to the war, including ... $74 million for secure peanut storage. I like peanuts as much as the next guy, but I believe the security of our troops should come before the security of our peanut crop.
It actually comes off funnier (to me) if you listen to the audio. You can read and listen to it here.
