President Bush threw out the first pitch at a baseball game in D.C. this weekend... and got booed. I'm not all that surprised that he was booed, but the surrounding media blitz, analyzing this fact was, well... interesting, to say the least.
The audio on the TV segments was hard to hear, but there were some, "boos" in there, for sure. The talking heads on the news debated what was the cause of the booing. (Take your pick, there are so many reasons to boo the moron in charge of our country.)
But what caught me off guard was the coverage on Fox News. They were comparing the booing of Bush to the standing ovation Obama's racist pastor got at a religious event the same weekend. One of the commentators said he understood why Bush was booed, citing, "Bush fatigue," adding:
"It doesn't surprise me - with all that's going on right now - that people are a little Bush-worn."
Uh, OK. I'm just going to let that one go.
