Make Sure You Pick Up All The Trash

Chimpy, yesterday at the Congressional Picnic.

THE PRESIDENT: 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.

  4. Can’t wait ’til January ’09 to THROW OUT THE TRASH!!! Although the way that they’re stinking up the nation now, maybe we can toss out the garbage a bit earlier.

  5. Did the comment about picking up the trash a) denigrate the skills of the musicians, b) have racist undertones, c) …

  6. Don’t mean to give the guy a break, but I think the “You all enjoy yourself. Make sure you pick up all the trash after it’s over.” was directed at the audience of congresspeople (about picking up after their picnic).
