Roy Blount, Jr. Defends the President

We've heard the story, here via the Guardian:
Asked by Germany's Bild am Sonntag newspaper what he considered to be his greatest triumph, President Bush replied: "I've experienced many great moments. It's hard for me to name the greatest." He went on: "I would say that the best moment of all came when I caught a seven-and-a-half pound perch while fishing on my lake."
On NPR's Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me, Roy Blount, Jr. spoke up on Bush's behalf:
I'd like to defend the president on this. I think he was right.

It's worse than you think... in TX bass fishing is a religion. So for Bush to get the fish wrong proves he's out of touch; the good ol' boys must be snickering. Perch is what the boys catch down there. To confuse a perch with a bass is almost as bad as... well, confusing a lawyer with a quail.
