“Dumb as a sock”

I did my best to try and explain the Iraq War to David yesterday.  He wanted to know why we didn't just use the atomic bomb since that had worked out okay in WWII.  In fact, he yelled out to me while trying to fall asleep to explain why it had been okay to drop the bomb on Japan (that's right, my 8 year old gets insomnia worrying about history).  Anyway, after explaining the Iraq War in a thoroughly objective and non-partisan manner, David responds, “George Bush is dumb as a sock.”  Believe it or not, I really have been teaching respect for the president all these years, but mostly I was pleased to see David come up with a put-down I would have used myself.
