The new civility

The popular new show "Game of Thrones" uses the decapitated head of ... George W. Bush on a spike. But it wasn't political, says the show's creators:

The last head on the left is George Bush. George Bush’s head appears in a couple of beheading scenes. It’s not a choice, it’s not a political statement. We just had to use whatever head we had around.

Yeah, right -- and the Khmer Rouge has won numerous awards for its commitment to human rights!

"Not a political statmement...." yeah, right. This is actually not uncommon for HBO shows; most if not all of them are pretty damn liberal. "Weeds" frequently throws potshots at Republicans and gushes over Obama and other Democrats, for example.
