But He's Not Saying Whether He Came or Not 

Via Zemblan patriot J.M.: Have YOU had Splash Day??
President Bush drew laughs from his audience Tuesday when he asked whether the Galveston area still hosts "Splash Day."

The annual beach party that dates to the 1950s does live on -- but now as an unofficial gay and lesbian event.

In town to speak about Social Security, Bush told the crowd: "I want to thank the mayor for being here -- Lyda Ann Thomas greeted me coming in. I said, 'Do you still have Splash Day?'"

The crowd laughed. "You have to be a baby boomer to know what I'm talking about," Bush said. The crowd laughed again . . . .

Drawing another round of laughter, Bush said: "I'm not saying whether I came or not on Splash Day. I'm just saying, 'Do you have Splash Day?'"
