THE PRESIDENT: Please be seated. This isn't exactly "the swamp." (Laughter.) This weekend, it would have been the ice rink. Today, it is the White House that welcomes the National Champion Florida Gators. (Applause.)

So you might remember one of my family members held elected office in Florida. Yes, that was -- (applause) -- I hope he's found work. (Laughter.) And so I said, you know, I had the privilege of welcoming the Texas Longhorns to the White House. He said, one of these days, you're going to be welcoming a Florida team. And he's right. One year after the Longhorns came, here comes the mighty Gators. And we welcome you. And we're glad you're here. (Applause.)

President George W. Bush welcomes the 2006 NCAA football champion University of Florida Gators football team to the White House, Monday, March 19, 2007.  White House photo by Joyce Boghosian So you might call it Gator country. This is the 100th anniversary of college football at the University of Florida. It's a pretty fine way to celebrate the 100th year. (Applause.)

I want to thank Coach Urban Meyer and Shelley for joining us. I appreciate Dr. Machen, the President of the University of Florida, and his wife, Chris. Manny Fernandez, thanks for coming -- he's the Chairman. Members of the Board of Trustees, we're glad you all are here. Thank you for serving.

Carolyn Roberts, who is the Chair of the Board of Governors, is with us. I presume the Athletic Director is here. If not, he's probably done -- it's amazing, isn't it? So, like, the basketball team, and now the football team. (Applause.) Like, what are you doing down there? (Laughter.) Yes, Gatorade. (Laughter.)

I appreciate the members of my administration who are here, but I particularly want to thank the members of Congress, starting with Senator Bill Nelson. Thank you for coming, Senator. Appreciate you being here. Adam Putnam, all he talks about is Gator football. (Applause.) Cliff Stearns -- appreciate you being here, Cliff. Corrine Brown, thank you for coming. John Mica, Ander Crenshaw, Jeff Miller, and Gus Bilirakis, thank you all for joining us. Thanks for serving. (Applause.)

So the Florida Gators had the nation's toughest schedule, and instead of wearing them down, it made them tougher; instead of, like, discouraging them that they got the bad deal when it came to the schedule, all that did was cause them to play harder. And it put them in pretty good stead going into the championship game. Like you might remember, all the pre-game polls said you couldn't win. (Laughter.) So much for polls. (Laughter and applause.)

I don't know how you felt when the guy ran the kickoff back -- looked like a rough start -- but you didn't let it get you down. And you showed an unbelievable offense and a swarming defense. And we really congratulate you, you're a well-coached team of highly disciplined athletes.

I particularly like the story of the two quarterbacks, Chris Leak and Tim Tebow. First of all -- (applause.) Where's Tebow? There he is. It's like the guy is trying to bring the single wing back, you know? (Laughter.) And so Tebow takes a look at Florida and sees the fact that they've got a four-year starter, but loves the school more than anything else and helps Chris Leak be a better quarterback. That's what we call teammates, people playing together for the common good. And we thank you both for the leadership you've shown. Of course, you wouldn't be half the players that you are without the huge offensive line and the receivers and backs you've got behind you -- I know you would say that.

President George W. Bush is joined by University of Florida Gators football coach Urban Meyers, right, and team quarterback Chris Leak during ceremonies at the White House, Monday, March 19, 2007, to honor the 2006 NCAA football championship team. White House photo by Eric Draper I appreciate your defense. I clearly remember linebacker Earl Everett. (Applause.) I've seen that face before. (Laughter.) So has the whole country. You might remember, Everett lost his headgear. He didn't lose his head -- (laughter) -- but he lost his headgear and he went on to make a great tackle in a key moment. That's called tough defense, hard-nosed defense. (Applause.)

Where's Ray McDonald? Can I say what Ray McDonald said? Can I quote you, Ray? Okay, I will. (Laughter.) Here's what he said: "We don't really believe in destiny. We believe when your number is called, you make the play." What he's saying is, is that there's no chance. "We win because we do what we're coached to do, and we're good at it." And I appreciate the spirit, and I appreciate the caliber -- (applause) -- of people on this team.

It didn't take Urban Meyer long. Like, the guy shows up, the next thing he knows, he's at the White House. (Laughter.) Whoever hired him, good choice. He's an amazing coach, with a good coaching staff. And so I congratulate not only the players, but I congratulate the coaching staff. I congratulate all those who pick up the towels and make the program run. I thank those who help sell the tickets, and the unsung heroes of any athletic program. If you're here, we welcome you to the White House, and we appreciate what you've done for the national champs.

I do want to say another thing about this program, Mr. President. I was very pleased to see that the graduation success rate of Florida's athletic programs are 15 percent higher than the national average. (Applause.) After all, you are representing a great university. And I appreciate the fact that people can be student athletes. I appreciate it because at some point in time, you're not going to be an athlete. At some point in time, you're going to have to use the skills you learned as a student to be a constructive citizen of the United States.

And so, Coach, I appreciate the fact that you work hard with these players to make sure that they take advantage of this fantastic opportunity, and that is to be a student at the University of Florida.

President George W. Bush welcomes the 2006 NCAA football champion University of Florida Gators football team to the White House, Monday, March 19, 2007. White House photo by Joyce Boghosian I also appreciate the spirit of giving that's a part of this football program. I don't know if you know this or not, but Coach Meyer hosts the annual Urban Meyer Golf Scramble for Kids. This year, the event raised a record $300,000, all aiming at helping youth organizations buy equipment, all aiming at touching a soul, trying to make somebody's life better.

Coach, I appreciate the example you set, and I also appreciate the fact that 32 of your football players volunteered for community organizations; 32 souls said, I'm more than a football player, I'm a leader when it comes to helping the community in which I live.

Jamalle Cornelius, just happens to be captain. (Applause) Here's what he said. He said, "If everyone took a small leadership role in whatever it is they do, we can help eliminate some of the problems that are in our society." I love the spirit. (Applause.) I love the fact that champions understand you've got to be a champ on the field, as well as a champ off the field. And I believe one of the reasons this program is successful is because not only you're good football players, but you're good people.

And I want to say one other thing now that I've got the mic -- (laughter) -- I want to say something at Cam Brewer. Where's Cam? There he is, right there. United States Marine. (Applause.) I appreciate the fact that you wore the uniform of the United States of America. I appreciate the fact that you put self -- something larger than yourself as an important part of your life. It's a good example, isn't it? And now I appreciate the fact that you've taken advantage of the educational opportunities offered to those who have worn the uniform and gotten yourself an education at a fine university.

Again, I want to welcome you all to the White House. It's an honor to welcome you here. More importantly, it's an honor to welcome the National Football Champion Florida Gators. (Applause.)

It is 6:30 a.m. and dark out at 53.3 degrees F. Earthdog is still in bed.

Tonite the Gators reprise their championship gamae with UCLA. Go Gators!

Today's quote:

“People love a good conspiracy theory, which may be one of the reasons that actor Charlie Sheen is going to narrate a documentary about how the World Trade Towers were brought down by the U.S. government. About the same time, Rosie O’Donnell added her credibility to the project... A lot of the tin-foil hat crowd, have at least a little in common with Sheen and O’Donnell. They just don’t like to think about how much our enemies actually hate us. It’s easier to escape down a rabbit hole to a land where our own government is tricking us into thinking the world is a dangerous place.” —Sen. Fred Thompson

More later.

Yeah, right, Sawyer never noticed her.

It is 8:11 a.m. and overcast and 49.9 degrees outside and very wet/drippy. Patrick is curled up on his afghan in front of the space heater chewing on himself.

The Lord has given us another Great Day!

It's a great time to be a GATOR!

Well, LOST never fails to amuse us. They featured two background characters, interwove them among the rest of the survivors and gave us their complete backstory, then killed them off, all neatly in one episode. Wanting us to think that Sawyer didn't know NIkki or whatever the hell her name was tho was a little bit of a stretch, since she was arguably the hottest bikini babe the beach has seen to date (Save, Claire of course).

And of course, burying eight million in diamonds loosely in the sand with these two was a REAL stretch for ANYBODY. I know I'd be back that night to dig up a few...

I still want to know about Kate's Horse...

Oregon Player: What the Hecks this guy on???

It is 8:49 a.m. and 50.1 degrees F. and windy and rainy outside. Patrick's in the recliner.


The beginning of Rock Springs Vineyards are sticks in buckets of wet sand that have resided in the kitchen all winter. Five of the sticks have buds, so are viable. We are on our way!

Our prayers go out to Tony Snow, Presidential Press Secretary, (we don't like the neoage term "White House Spokesperson", it's gay.)

We're only half heartedly tuning into Idol this season, since none of the contestants seem to possess all three of our requirements:

1. Female

2. Hot

3. Good Singer

Is that so much to ask for? Even Simon has calmed down....

Pardon Scooter Now!

Found in our email in-box this morning:

I could live with this! We all should!

Australia Now, Canada / America Tomorrow?????

Excerpts from an on going debate in Australia.

This is true and can be checked at

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Shari law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.

A day after a group of mainstream Muslim leaders pledged loyalty toAustralia and her Queen at a special meeting with Prime Minister John Howard, he and his Ministers made it clear that extremists would face a crackdown. Treasurer Peter Costello, seen as heir apparent to Howard, hinted that some radical clerics could be asked to leave the country if they did not accept that Australia was a secular state, and its laws were made by parliament "If those are not your values, if you want a country which has Shari law or a theocratic state, then Australia is not for you", he said on National Television.

"I'd be saying to clerics who are teaching that there are two laws governing people in Australia: one the Australian law and another Islamic law that is false. If you can't agree with parliamentary law, independent courts, democracy, and would prefer Shari law and have the opportunity to go to another country, which practices it, perhaps, then, that's a better option", Costello said

Asked whether he meant radical clerics would be forced to leave, he said those with dual citizenship could possibly be asked to move to the other country. Education Minister Brendan Nelson later told reporters that Muslims who did not want to accept local values should "clear off. Basically people who don't want to be Australians, and who don't want, to live by Australian values and understand them, well then, they can basically clear off", he said.

Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques.

Quote: "IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks onBali, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians."

"However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the 'politically correct' crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism was offending others. I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to Australia." "However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand." "This idea of Australia being a multi-cultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national iden tity. And as Australians, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle."

"This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom"

"We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society .. Learn the language!"

"Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture."

"We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us."

"If the Southern Cross offends you, or you don't like "A Fair Go", then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet. We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don't care how you did things where you came from. By all means, keep your culture, but do not force it on others.

"This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,


"If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here So accept the country YOU accepted."

Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, Canadians/Americans will find the backbone to start speaking and voicing the same truths !

This could apply to all of our Immigrants' both Legal and illegal

If you agree , please SEND THIS TO EVERYBODY YOU KNOW!

Go Gators!

Just a few Gator pics I couldn't resist...


Junior removing cylinders from our Chevy SB 400 Sunday before the game.

It is 10:14 a.m. and raining at 61.4 degrees F. Patrick is here with me, curled up on his afghan at my feet like the good dog he is.

Listening to John McCain talking to Glenn Beck on the Radio as I type this. He says the recent democrat sponsored bill to end the war is a "date certain for surrender" and is shameful and disgraceful and was achieved thru bribing of members, including 3.5 million for Guided Tours of the Capitol, three million for sugar growers and 25 million for spinich growers.

I'd like to get in on that spinich deal--where do I sign up? I can grow spinich, or not grow spinich, either one.

The total pork in this abortion is TWENTY FOUR BILLION DOLLARS!!! (That would buy a lot of plate armor for army vehicles...

I'm upset that my group at Zook Free Zone isn't heaping lavish praise on me for being at 99.5% and number one with my Bracket...

If there are any left in the country who know who Rosie O'Donnell is (Stalin in a Sweatsuit) and don't think she is a complete lunatic, her comments yesterday on the view as reported on the web, should convince you once and for all. She thinks the Brit Sioldiers were NOT kidnapped and that it's just a set up to get us in a war with Iran... Nuff said.

Have I mentioned lately that Little Black Osama Bin Barack Obama Sambo's ears stick out? Am I the only one on earth to notice this? He's dead meat anyway, going after Miz Clinton the way he did....

Junior proudly displays a Chevy SB piston at Trader Rick's Last Outpost Garage

If you lay down on your belly, Patrick will turn you into his own personal butt-pillow

It is a quarter-past noon and 72.9 degrees F. outside and breezy and cloudy. Patrick is here eating his vegan lunch.

Random Thoughts for the Day:

Thank the Good Lord for Another beautiful day on Planet Earth!!

In the Gators' defeat of Oregon, Lee Humphrey stepped up and made SEVEN three point shots and a layup! Junior came down and watched the game with me. Patrick was ecstatic.That white guy can SHOOT! One of those NBA distance shots SHREDDED the net, causing a ten minute delay in the game! Oh, it's Great to be a Gator these days.

On to the Final Four and a rematch with UCLA...

My Bracket over at Zook Free Zone is at 98.5 %, I am alone in first place. Heh, heh. My final Four is perfect. Really sweated out Georgetown, tho--they won by TWELVE POINTS in OVER TIME!!

Speaking of UNC, their team mascot is in bad shape in the hospital. Fred Thompson, subbing for Paul Harvey, stated the Mascot was "hit by an SUV"--this is one of Rush's pet peeves, athropomorphizing SUV's as killers and planet wreckers. Sort of like killers who if they ever served in the USMC are always characterized as "ex-marines" in the drive-by media....

And Speaking of Fred Thompson, he is looking better and better to us as a viable and electable alternative to the RINO's the Republicans have put up so far for POTUS. We had real good luck with the last actor we elected, who is now rated by honest historians as one of our GREATEST Presidents.

This terrorist Moslem State, the former Persia, has kidnapped British sailors off british vessels.

As we know , they are so good at kidnapping. Remember all our people they held for years until the very day Ronald Reagan took office? Remember those days? They really dodged a big ass bullet that day.

I doubt Iran would mess with a US Navy sailor with a republican as president. We have a history of getting majorly pissed off at messing with our sailors.

Fought a WAR over it in 1812 with Britain for impressing people off our ships. Fought a long bloody civil WAR when some rebels fired on a Navy Ship in 1861. Fought a WAR with Spain and took over their colonies when they blew up our battleship. Occupied Vera Cruz, Mexico for a YEAR when they detained some sailors for a few hours and we didn't like the tone of their apology. Fought a GREAT WAR against Germany when they sank a few of our ships. Fought Another WAR with Japan when they sunk our big boats in Hawaii and threw in Germany for good measure. Fought a war with North Vietnam when they shot at some of our boats in the Tonkin Gulf.

I don't know about Britain, but if Iran knows anything of our history, they'll target something other than sailors when they attack US...

I've got some sage fatherly advise for Peyton Manning (The tennessee quarterback who lost to the Gators on FOUR occasions). You are bright, handsome, talented, charasmatic. You may play in the NFL another ten years, or suffer a debilitating injury tonite. So prepare now for your post NFL career.

Sure, you might coach if that's your bent. You'd be a shoo-in as a color commentator, and you should do a stint at that.

However, lay a groundwork NOW for a HOLLYWOOD career and/or or a POLITICAL career. Plastics. You heard it here first.

And finally, had a goofy dream the other night and Patrick was in it. I was hiking somewhere with somebody and apparently wasn't paying close enuff attention to the wee dog (In the real world I never take my eye off him...) and he took off and started chasing these enormous wooley cats.

He chased them into some lady's house and she said I better get him or she was going to blast him with her shotgun. I explained to her that he liked to chase them, but just sniff them and play with them when they stopped. I chased him down these long corridors of terrazzo, like in a video game. Then, there was a gentle disolve, to a hallmark setting of us all sitting around a coffee table on pillows on the floor looking at scrapbooks (of cat pics?) with the cats and patrick cooing at each other under the table. Don't ask.

From the Patriot Post:

“Everyone knows Hillary Rodham Clinton, and everyone has a different reaction to her. Some find her as irritating as fingernails on a chalkboard. Some find that she makes their skin crawl. Some run screaming from the room. And some want to drink a gallon of rat poison while lying across a railroad track.

The conventional wisdom is that the former first lady will be a formidable presidential candidate because she has lots of money, veteran campaign aides, a shrewd political sense and a close connection to a president beloved by Democrats.

But those may be nothing next to a couple of fairly major factors operating against her.

The first is that many people in both parties see her as ideologically repellent. Conservatives think she’s an arrogant busybody with an addiction to big government. The Left regards her as a cynical trimmer who can’t admit when she’s wrong.

The second is that many people, again in both parties, just can’t stand her. You want a uniter, not a divider? Hillary has a way of uniting people who ordinarily would be pelting each other with eggs.

That explains the appeal of the new YouTube ad, modeled on Apple’s famous ‘1984’ Super Bowl commercial, which portrays her as a blandly sinister Big Sister on a giant screen, uttering phony platitudes to an army of robotic slaves. It ends happily when a blonde female athlete sprints in and hurls a sledgehammer at the screen, obliterating the image... As the campaign proceeds, some people will be hoping for her to succeed. But I’m betting a lot more will be rooting for the blonde with the sledgehammer.” —Steve Chapman

UPDATE: We just heard on the radio that the UNC Mascot Jason died this morning. Our prayers go out to his family and the Tarheels.
