Yesterday, though, was kind of better, as President B**h was loudly booed at the Nationals’ home opener:

Knucklehead throws Knuckleball
Moron on the mound

Send him back to the El Paso single-A team.

I'm just not hearing all that much booing.

I watched this last night on C and L, and was not satisfied with the amount of booing. I think its a prime example of American apathy. I would have booed the shit out of that asshole! Fuck em!

We need to impeach him, and send him to GITMO to experience waterboarding 24/7 until 2009 rolls along.

Some people still like the guy (not me) and it's more than you think. I mean, either that or the crowd wasn't that drunk yet.

I hate to be the one to say it, but that motherfucker has a pretty decent throwing arm for a 60-year-old (or whatever he is now).

They weren't booing, they were yelling "Buuuuush!"

@9- how do you know? And I didnt really hear any boos. Maybe 1 or 2 people.

some boos. not nearly enough. DC sucks.

and the DB announcer just blithely soldiering on, protecting his job, being a "professional", tossing out meaningless compliments about asshole's throwing arm. who the fuck cares.

There just aren't that many boos. Interesting how they bring up 9/11 at the end of the clip on ABC-owned ESPN. ABC, the network that brought you the docu-drama completely re-writing the events that led up to 9/11 (Clinton was responsible) on the fifth anniversary of 9/11. I don't know if anyone noticed but there was a feature on GMA Friday on whether being gay was nature or nuture.

There are still a lot of people who have respect for the office and won't insult the officeholder to his face.

The Washington Post is reporting (in a couple of columns) about Bush being booed by a majority of the people in the stands.

I think it's harder to hear the ultra-rich in the skyboxes ...

ESPN did everything they could to block it out, like what WWE does when the crowd boos a wrestler they're supposed to cheer. But the booing was clear and evident watching on the tube.

Are they saying Boo, or Boo-urns?

Posted by Patrick | March 31, 2008 3:36 PM

I swear I see a flicker of self doubt at 0:57. Priceless.
