Presidency Highlight

I heard this from "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me", an NPR radio show a while ago, a question to a panelist about Bush's answer to the highlight of his presidency. The following are the Q and A:

Peter Segal (the host):
"Adam, when asked to name the highlight of their presidency, Jimmy Carter said it was the Camp David Accords; Bill Clinton said it was ending the war in the Balkin. Well in an interview with a German magazine, President Bush was asked to name the highlight of his presidency, he thought about it and then answered what?"

Adam Felber (the panelist): "... He said that it was catching a 7.5 lb perch in his own lake."

Peter Segal: "That's what it was!"

A round of laughter broke out from the audience and the panelists.

And then Roy Blount Jr. (another panelist) suddenly cut in to defend the president: " I would like to... I would like to defend the president on this," he said, " I think he was right!"

That was pretty funny. You can hear that portion of the show from here,
