    It was Bush-the-Dimmer in 2006:

    The issue was little known in the US before Bush's annual State of the Union speech before Congress Tuesday night.

    'Tonight I ask you to pass legislation to prohibit the most egregious abuses of medical research: human cloning in all its forms, creating or implanting embryos for experiments, creating human-animal hybrids, and buying, selling, or patenting human embryos,' he told legislators.

    The statement has provoked ridicule on the internet and on the popular television news spoof 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart' - testimony to how closely the American public follows the annual speech.

    Technorati.com, a website that measures Internet traffic, listed 'human-animal hybrid' as its second most popular search term. On the day after the speech, more people searched for the phrase than in the previous year combined, according to the site.

    Only hours after Bush concluded his remarks, an online apparel store had already designed a T-shirt showing a monkey wearing a tie.

    'Help President Bush raise awareness about these terrible half- man/half beast creatures by wearing this T-shirt and exposing the horrible truth about human-animal hybrids,' the come-on pitch says.
