Work has kept me too busy to do a lot of the blogging I have wanted to do, so a number of posts of mine are going to be delayed reactions to controversies that briefly raged a few days ago. This is one such post.
I like Game of Thrones. I think that it is a wonderful television series, and I look forward to reading the books, once I have at least some of the books in my current pile taken care of. But the folks behind the television series made a doozy of a mistake when they decided to feature a copy of George W. Bush’s head on a pike.
I suppose that there are a lot of things that one can write in response. But for myself, I am not not in the least bit surprised that a king as wicked, evil, loathsome, and despicable as Joffrey Baratheon would put George W. Bush’s head on a pike. And I am not surprised that people equally wicked, evil, loathsome and despicable would find the choice amusing.
As for the former president, he must feel quite flattered that Joffrey Baratheon hates him so. I know that I would be.
