It has been replaced by effigies of former President George W. Bush and Hillary Clinton.

Good luck hitting the George Bush one!

If I were this guy, I'd ramp the notoriety by having absolutely no agenda...I'd just be trying to shock people. I'd have the Pope up there one day, then Glenn Beck, then Hillary Clinton, then some random 5-year-old girl, then a picture of Terry Schiavo, then Hitler, then Ghandi, then Osama bin Laden, then Mother Teresa. Nobody would ever know from day to day who was going to get baseballs thrown at them, and the news would eat it up trying to figure out what statement I was trying to make.

If it was GWB or Hillary Clinton to begin with it wouldn't have made the news.

If Hillary wanted to get hit in the face with balls, she'd dress like an intern.

No Snooki effigy? You guy have no idea how to market.
 
2010-08-12 12:22:22 PM  
How about an effigy of Jesus that you claim is actually a visual representation of Muhammed? That way everyone's happy.

Good luck hitting the Hillary effigy. The last time balls were anywhere near her was when Chelsea was conceived.

Yes, and those were Janet Reno's balls.

The Charlie Rangel effigy didn't work out -- it kept the balls and failed to report them as income.

Look, Pedro, I don't know how they do things down in Juarez, but here in Idaho we have a little something called pride. Understand? Smashing in the face of a pinata that resembles Summer Wheatley is a disgrace to you, me, and the entire Gem State.

Blowers: "So the Iraqi has the shoe, he's been shining it, and it's a lovely day here in Baghdad, pigeons and journalists are strolling the outfield. He's in, he bowls to Bush, and Bush ducks away from it and there's....no run."

Boycs: "Bush didn't like that one, did he? He doesn't like it up him, does he?"

Blowers: "Hard to get the shoe away on this pitch, I'm afraid. Right. We're getting ready for another shoe. He's in, he bowls to Bush, oh that was terrible!"

Boycs: "Rubbish bowling."

Blowers: "Nowhere near what's required. No line, no length. Bill, do you have the stats on this."

Extraordinary claims demand extraordinary proof! Let's start with every turkey baster within 50 miles of where Chelsea was conceived.

Look a grown man has turned his obsession with life-sized dolls into an attention-whore business which barely keeps the lights on. No. Not hitting it.

Um... who cares who he as up there? People want to vent their frustrations with a baseball at a street game? Great. Go for it.

Better than becoming this dude.

It's premature to call it racist until we know what color the balls are. But if they're white...

Or maybe it's just a small business owner making adjustments to his business in response to his customers.

FTFA: A plastic bag was placed over the Obama character's head after some people earlier this week said it was disrespectful to use the president's likeness.

Considering the 'likeness' looks more like

than Obama, I'd have to agree with that.

BitwiseShift: an attention-whore business which barely keeps the lights on.

Not really. The Whalen's own half the Seaside Heights boardwalk, including the famous Lucky Leos, and have for decades. They're not having any trouble keeping the lights on.

They were shoes, give the serious men in sunglasses a break. They would jump in front of any President whose life was in danger.

Exactly, I'm sure everyone was checked for weapons at the door, not whether or not their shoes posed as lethal projectiles.

what happened to freedom of speech?

even if it IS racist (and i don't think it is), he should be allowed to have whatever racist crap he wants since that's just like, his opinion, man.

The Secret Service was under strict orders by George W Bush not to jump in the way of bullets or any other projectile becuase GWB "wanted to try that stuff Ted did in that Matrix movie"

The owner's freedom of speech is intact. He did not switch away from Obama because he was ordered to or faced legal consequences, he switched because people spoke up against the Obama mask and he decided that was bad for business.

That's the way it's supposed to work.

So no freedom of speech issue here.

I was going to ask the same thing but I decided I didn't want to read a retarded response and just put him on ignore.

I'm pretty damn left and I have no issue at all with the guy putting up anybody's face he wants. None. But SOME (not all -- some) right-wingers would prefer to think they know what leftists think better than actual leftists do, and argue against those strawmen. I've even had a couple recently accuse me of lying about what I actually believe -- not the facts I was supporting my beliefs with, even, but my actual beliefs.

It's the second line in the story.

"It has been replaced by effigies of former President George W. Bush and Hillary Clinton."

Is it really that difficult to read two lines? I mean, the whole story itself is only about 200 words. If you really wanted to go crazy, you could read the whole thing.

But even getting two lines into it would have helped you avoid making an idiotic comment.
