I love Game of Thrones!! It’s up there with Homeland and Dexter. I could lounge for weeks watching these brilliantly choreographed shows.
The Republicans are boycotting ‘Thrones’ because they used Bush’s decapitated head as a prop on their show…more than once. To think I used a scarecrow head on Halloween and not a Presidents head really makes me feel like an A-hole. I mean it’s not like it was attached! Relax republicans, people have been using dead president heads in robberies for years…This one just happens to be alive, but he’s going to die eventually so don’t trip. Just enjoy the show and stfu.
I’m a jerk read the rest……….
Politicians are calling for a boycott of HBO’s fantasy series Game of Thrones after the creator’s ‘despicable’ decision to include former President George W. Bush’s severed head in several scenes.
In the tenth episode of the first season, Mr Bush’s decapitated head is seen impaled on a wooden spike, covered in filthy long hair and slathered in dirt.
Show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who noted the appearance in the series’ DVD commentary, insist it wasn’t a political statement – just a prop.
But the image has provoked outrage among some Republican politicians.
