WHO HECKLED HU?

Ladies & Gentlemen, here is the first in what I hope will be a recurring post. Yes, for out-of-towners and New Yorkers alike, I present the New York Post headline of the day:

“Wok This Way – Dubya has pull with China Chief”

That, folks, is just what we’ve come to love & expect from the copy boys at our favorite tabloid: groan-worthy puns, references to movie lines/song titles, colloquialisms, and perhaps most importantly, subtle racism combined with worship of the Decider-in-Chief (“DIC”). It ain’t “Headless Body Found In Topless Bar,” or even “Marv Flips His Lid,” but it’s a good one.

Dear Mike:

That's not what really gets my goat. It's the way both media and politicians have crucified this brave woman when we should be celebrating her as a true freedom fighting full of spunk and ingenuity (sort of a middle-aged, femenine, Asian version of 'V' without the knifes or explosions).

But noooooo!. The media is besides itself because the spunky lady leveraged a press pass to deliver her protest. Bad form, sweetie: you don't abuse the majesty of the press. And in such navel-gazing fashion they hang her for her crime of lese majeste against the MSM.

And the politicians? Well, what would you expect. Groveling at the feet of our main creditor and banker. Falling on their kness to deliver a BJ to the representative of a regime that's murdered and tortured millions for the 'crimes' of free speech and free worship. Cuddling up to a regime every bit as bad as Saddam's.

Ironic to think we have men and women dying in Iraq even as we speak upholding the rights we so cavalierly deny this brave woman.

Makes me wanna puke.

Cheers,

Jorge

Yes. I love the way the stories all focused on the DIC's embarrassment, or his heartfelt apologies to Premier Hu.

As if the combination of protest and an activist press were things to be ashamed of.

Hey, what can one expect from a paper owned by the guy responsible for Bill and Sean?

BTW: wasn't it the Post that tried to out Mike "sweep tag" Piazza several years ago?

John-

I'm not sure who Bill & Sean are. Our oft-fellated former President and Diddy? I'm sure both have appeared on page 6 a time or 97.

As to outing Piazza, if a story involves a moustachio'd celebrity, accusations of homosexuality, and shameless rumor and innuendo, I think the Post is contractually required to cover it.

Bill and Sean are Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity.

That's my attempt at a Keith Olbermann-esque reference to Rupert Murdoch owning the Post and Fox News Channel.
