Radio Friday: What Fresh Outrage?

Ooh, a lot of people are all mad and stuff because someone's decapitated George W Bush and shoved his severed head onto a pike atop a wall in Malta.

Oh, wait.  Scratch that.  Guys not actually dead.  It's just a "spare head" they had lying around.  Sure, like that's believable.  Like many of those on the rightmost vertices of the blogohedron, I know nothing about the fake head industry in Malta, but I'm still 100% sure that it wouldn't involve making images of famous celebrities, particularly not those notorious the world over.  And even if that weren't the case, we all know how astronomical the budget was for the show's first season. 

Are we really supposed to believe they sunk all that cash into big name actors, lavish sets, hundreds of extras, and CGI castles and dragons?  Please.  Ensuring fake heads look like no person alive would surely have been the place to spread some real cash around; get the job done properly.

Frankly, I'm disgusted by this treatment of an effigy of President Bush. Such callous disrespect - perhaps even a kind of death threat? - would only be remotely justifiable if Bush had been responsible for the deaths of over two hundred thousand innocent people.

As it is, all those left-wing filth-peddlers over at HBO should just thank their lucky stars that Bush left  Malta unbombed for them to film on.

Since it's Radio Friday, I'd best put up a video, and what better choice than a quartet of scruffy young Turks advocating the beheading of Bill Clinton.  At least, I assume that's what they're doing.
