Bush been in DC too long

Yup, things have changed in Texas since he was around for "Splash Day," the "adult-oriented enormous beach party." The president shocked locals on Tuesday, asking: "Do you still have Splash Day? (laughter)... I'm not saying whether I came or not on Splash Day. I'm just saying, Do you have Splash Day? (laughter)." Why the laughter? Well, it's difficult to know what the base would say about Bush's (wink wink) knowledge of an "adult-oriented" party from years past; what's not so difficult is to know what they'd say about "Splash Day" now -- a gay and lesbian affair.
