Gee, this Presidential-ating is hard work.  Especially when you’re a record-breaking President (record-breaking for number of vacation days in while being President, that is).

But this one just made me shake my head this morning.  Let’s call it What I Did on My Bazillionth Vacation Day in Office:

U.S. President George W. Bush told a German newspaper his best moment in more than five years in office was catching a big perch in his own lake.

"You know, I’ve experienced many great moments and it’s hard to name the best," Bush told weekly Bild am Sonntag when asked about his high point since becoming president in January 2001.

"I would say the best moment of all was when I caught a 7.5 pound (3.402 kilos) perch in my lake," he told the newspaper in an interview published on Sunday.

So, let me get this straight. The man has been President for five freaking years. And the thing that he thinks is his best moment in office as President of the US of A is catching a big fish in his lake.

Jeebus.

(Hat tips to reader Gyro Gear Loose and Peter Daou for the heads up on this one.  Holy crap…just when you think you can’t be more disgusted.  Either he’s doing his "I’m just like every doofus out there, a common man." tap dance routine again before the Fall elections, or he really is that much of a doofus for real.  You choose.)
