While I understand this heartfelt attempt at satire, I believe naming the water treatment plant after someone as odious as the internationally recognized war criminal George W. Bush is wrong for one simple reason: Unlike Bush, the plant actually performs a valuable function.
I've wracked my brain for a couple of weeks now trying to figure out some other entity that could be renamed, something that would truly reflect Bush's legacy, but I'm at a loss as to what that might be.
Anyone have any ideas?

Tio - It's not about what comes out of the treatment plant, it's about what goes in. In any case, it would be up to the local organizers to decide want to rename in Bush's honor in their communities, so sewage plants and garbage dumps are just a suggestion.

Just rename the patch of hair around your anal hole after him, that oughta do it.
Now for something else:
Family Security Matters a neo-conservative based think tank has published an article advocating that George W. Bush should be a dictator for life.

Tio, you make a good point, the plant is vital and should be respected, unlike Bushbaby.
If they did name it after him, there would probably be spills and containment leaks, anything for the Bush Crime Family to continue to shit on the Bay Area.
I would suggest then maybe renaming Gitmo after him, but that would be an insult to the Cubans.
With all due respect to Dr. Guillotin, perhaps we could rename his invention the Bushwacker after we use it on Chimpy.
But, I realize this whole discussion, is WHY Georgie was made President to beging with: he's the perfect Mancherian front man to absorb the praise and scorn of the masses while the real players like Cheney, Addington, Baker, Kissinger pull strings from behind the curtain.

Here's a thought: Perhaps we should limit the naming of George W. Bush Legacy sites to Superfund sites. After all, they are extremely toxic and will take forever to clean up.
There are currently 1,623 Superfund sites nationwide; 93 Superfund sites in California, with three more proposed.
Moreover, one out of two Americans live within 10 miles of a Superfund site. That means half of us can live within biking distance of a George W. Bush Legacy Site!
Just imagine: The EPA would be stacked to the rafters with documents headed Gorge W. Bush Legacy Site #00001 through #01623; newspaper articles would be headlined "George W. Bush Legacy Site #00623 Contaminates Aquifer"; etc.
Again, just a thought.

A little family history.
My father worked his way up through the ranks to be a Supervisor who eventially became the Superintendent at a sewage treatment plant in Independence, Mo. He worked there for roughly 30 years. Late in his life, when he couldn't meet the physical requirements, the city hired him as a consultant.
I have fond memories, as a child, going to work with dad and being allowed to go out on the settling pond with him.
He'd launch a 14 ft boat on the settling pond and we'd go out and stir things up to help the settling. That was many years ago.
The one thing I remember most fondly about dad is his since of humour.
In those days if you worked at a sewage treatment plant all the other city workers : parks department, transportation department, etc. were gonna kid you and tell jokes about working at a sewage treatment plant.
So, I have to ask? Is it fitting for San Fransisco to name one of its largest waste water treatment plants for George W.?
I'll answer that myself.
That's a freaking excellent idea.
So, look at it this way.
George W., and his ilk, are the shit pile of the world. Where else would the excretement that he and his ilk produced flow to but a sewage treatment plant named after him.
My only question is. Will TurdBlossom have a settling tank named after him? :_)

#8 Troubled Texan,
Hey that was nice! And also thanks for bringing up the topic of shit! Because I wanted to share with y'all the lyrics to this song I wrote, The Bullshit Song, & I was thinking Hmmm...doesn't really fit in with water treatment plants...but it sure fits the bush boys.
Be better with the melody, but here ya go, for what it's worth...
The Bullshit Song
What does it for you, what sets your hair on fire the most?
Maybe it's the war, or the fact that our reputation is toast?
When you're calling tech support & they're in Bombay
And you can't understand a single a word they say?
Well I know for me it's that every damn day
All we get is BULLSHIT
Maybe it's that smirk on his face when the whole damn country's gone to hell,
Or maybe it's the fact that he just can't speak the English language very well.
Is it all the good jobs that have just gone away?
Or that filling up the car takes half of your pay?
No, I'd really still have to say
It's the constant BULLSHIT
Do they think we're stupid? Oh yeah, they do
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain
They want us fat & lazy, and deaf dumb & blind
Yeah, then we won't notice we're hurtin'
Does it burn you up that they keep cutting taxes for billionnaires?
You know I seem to recall New Orleans still could use a few minor repairs.
The country's so in debt, we're running out of dough,
Can't expect Uncle Sam to help the average Joe,
Oh no ya can't get in the way of the reliable flow
Of all their BULLSHIT
Does it make you see red that Watergate now seems like a day at the beach?
Do you pull out your hair when they keep pretending Noo we can't impeach?
Is it that what they say is never what they mean?
Or that they're laying waste to the American Dream?
No it's more that reeking & reliable stream
Of never-ending BULLSHIT
You know our votes are safe, they wouldn't mess with those
Ha! How stupid do they think we are?
They guard 'em carefully until the polls are closed
And then we find 'em in the trunk of a car
Does it make you crazy when their laws mean the opposite of what they're called?
(The Clean Air Act...right)
Or when you hear another one's caught with his pants down in a bathroom stall?
These are powerful men, got the guns, got the toys
Why can't they just admit, they kinda like boys?
(It's OKAY guys!)
No, they'll cover it up using one of their ploys...
Here comes more BULLSHIT
Hey, the economy's great, lookin' strong, gettin' better every day!
And the Constitution, just a piece of paper, we didn't need it anyway!
I don't know whose to blame for the fix we're in
But my patience is really kinda wearin' thin
You can call it hype, you can call it spin
Well I call it BULLSHIT

In general, I like the idea. However, naming ANYTHING after him would be an insult to that thing and an ongoing unpleasant reminder of him and his administration!

Hey Jon!, Troy King has to purge himself from the voting roles now.
[...]the State Legislature clearly defined what those crimes are: murder, rape, sodomy, sexual abuse, incest, sexual torture and nine other crimes mainly involving pornography and abuses against children.
At issue in the lawsuit is not the list enacted in law but an expanded “moral turpitude” list developed by the state’s attorney general, Troy King, in 2005. That list includes about a dozen additional offenses, most of them nonviolent, and several including the sale of marijuana.

Tio Wally #6 has the best idea: rename all nuclear waste sites after him. The George W. Bush Nukular Waste Mountain.

Some Southern Bush Buddies wouldn't like that too much, and neither would networking corporate comrades, particularly the fratboys making money at CCA.

The most fitting legacy/memorial for this unarguably worst US President EVER is the large smoking hole in the ground where the US economy used to be. Not only can he not pronounce "nuclear", he is apparently genetically incapable of saying the word "recession". Perhaps he will have an easier time with "depression" instead.
Right now, the most honorable thing he could do is go on a hunting trip with Dick Chaney (this is your chance Dick, don't screw it up.) Then, hopefully, Dick will keel over from the excitement, and Nancy Palosi will have a chance to kick-start the Democrats until Obama takes over in January.
