barney, you're doing a heckuva job

dog lady correctly points out that "one of President Bush’s more endearing qualities is his unabashed joy in a cantankerous terrier named Barney".

barney's got his own website, but this year he had to learn to share his stardom with miss beazley. that's also the topic of the annual white house christmas video ("a very beazley christmas"), which, as always, is much better with the sound turned off. if you find that hard to believe, i recommend that you check out the text version first.

[the title of this posting refers to what has been named the quote of the year in the washington post - except that, unlike the original quote, it does not pack "maximal inaccuracy into minimal expression", as ted widmer put it in his comment on the original]
