USS George H.W. Bush Commisioned



Pretty cool! I bet that was pretty neat to be George W. and get to commision an aircraft carrier for you dad. From the ship's website:

On Saturday, October 7, 2006, Northrop Grumman Newport News will christen the nation’s 10th and final Nimitz-class aircraft carrier, George H. W. Bush (CVN 77).


Good for him. Here's a cool desktop background:



Just had a sad thought: Can you imagine a USS William Jefferson Clinton or God forbid, a USS Hillary Rodham Clinton? I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

UPDATE: Looks like we may be needing it soon (see post above).
