US President George W. Bush ripped into “Hollywood values” on Monday, in a surprise attack at the entertainment industry that overwhelmingly backs his Democratic foes.
Sane leftist Steve Benen responds:
This is wildly unfair. Bush neither “ripped into” nor “attacked” Hollywood at all …
It was a harmless joke. People laughed. There was no further mention of Hollywood, the entertainment industry, or popular culture. Why on earth did the AFP write a stand-alone story on this?
I know the hair-trigger is pretty sensitive, but this whole thing reminds me a bit of the recent “Mandela is dead” flap. Can we stick to actual dumb comments the president makes?
Rollins put in his 2 cents’ worth about President Bush’s embarrassing utterings (for example, saying former South African President Nelson Mandela is dead) …
Hooway, Henwy. And there’s this guy:
Even I wouldn’t believe Bush could be this stupid if I hadn’t heard it for myself.
Here’s Dubya in his own words:
“I heard somebody say, Where’s Mandela?’ Well, Mandela’s dead because Saddam Hussein killed all the Mandelas.”
It goes on and on and on …
Bush claims Saddam Hussein killed the still living Nelson Mandela! -There is no fucking way you can tell me that Bush isn’t doing drugs again.
Somebody hurry and tell Mandela he’s dead because I think I just saw him on TV and he didn’t act like he had the latest intel related to his demise.
