Walking Eagle

From the email forward files comes this tale:
During a recent campaign tour of the Apache Nation in the state of New Mexico, President George W. Bush said that he planned to increase every Native American's income by $40,000 a year. The President refused repeated requests for details of his plan. However, he also told the Apaches that during his career as Governor of Texas, he signed YES 9,637 times on Indian issues that reached his desk for approval.

Before his departure, the Apache Tribe presented the President with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name, Walking Eagle. After the President's departure on Air Force One, tribal officials explained to the news media that Walking Eagle is the name given a bird so full of shit that it can't fly.
Ah, what's in a name!
