George W. Bush, accompanied by his father, George H. W. Bush, threw a heater down the middle to Nolan Ryan before the start of game 4 last night. And the crowd went wild.
MLB has taken down the video, but here’s a link I found. Not great quality, but it tells the story. No boos, no mom jeans, no limp-wristed wild pitch.
Love ya, Dubya.
Just what we need. Another lefty sports writer with a chronic case of BDS – and a serious case of stupid. Yesterday, Filip Bondy of the NY Daily News wrote a race-obsessed piece about how expensive Saints tickets are and how most of the fans in the Superdome during the NFC championship game were white. To bolster his point, he notes that the crowd “heartily cheered” for Katrina villain, President Bush. The problem with this “aha!” moment is that it was President George H. W. Bush at the game, not his son.
Newsbusters notes that the paragraph has gone down the memory hole, but they have a screen capture of it in all of its ignorant glory.
If you needed further proof of this [New Orleans racial] divide, then it came during a pregame introduction of former President Bush. Once pilloried for his approach to the Katrina catastrophe in 2005, Bush was heartily cheered at the Superdome – which tells you all you need to know about the crowd’s demographics.
Bondy must have been too busy conducting his Superdome Census to notice the wrong President Bush was being cheered by all of the rich white people in the stands.
