President Bush is stubborn and has a skull of "solid granite," Republican Sen. Conrad Burns said in criticizing Bush's continued support for placing some U.S. port operations under a company based in the United Arab Emirates.

A day after Burns made the remark at the Hill County Republican Party's annual Lincoln Day Dinner, spokesman Matt Mackowiak said the reference to granite was not meant as an insult. "He says the same thing about his son," Mackowiak said. "It's a little joke he likes to use."

Too funny.
