Kennedy To Receive Bush Public Service Award
Say Whaaat? "The George Bush Presidential Library Foundation announced that United States Senator Edward M. Kennedy would receive the 2003 George Bush Award for Excellence in Public Service."

I think this award was a fraud made up in Texas.

I agree, djspicerack. Anyone who's been caught driving drunk should have their decades of valuable public service disregarded. I'm looking at you, George Dubya Bush.

OK. Let me get this straight.

Ted Kennedy gets an award from George Bush. Arnold Schwarzenegger is governor of California. And there's a very good chance we could have a Cubs/Red Sox World Series.

If anyone needs me I'll be stocking up on canned goods and building a bunker.

It's probably some kind of sarcastic in-joke.
