Just in case this story doesn't get much play in the mainstream media (Ha!), our Chimperor recently gave an interview to the German newspaper Bild am Sonntag. He was asked about the high points and low points of his presidency. What was the pinnacle? His crowning achievement?

BERLIN (Reuters) - U.S. President George W. Bush told a German newspaper his best moment in more than five years in office was catching a big perch in his own lake.

"You know, I've experienced many great moments and it's hard to name the best," Bush told weekly Bild am Sonntag when asked about his high point since becoming president in January 2001.

"I would say the best moment of all was when I caught a 7.5 pound (3.402 kilos) perch in my lake," he told the newspaper in an interview published on Sunday.
