Shattered Confidence

Daniel Pipes writes:

Awarding of the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Muhammad Ali gratuitously celebrated a man profoundly opposed to Bush’s own, his party’s, and the country’s principles. It represents, I submit, the nadir of his presidency.

Man, wait till he hears about the rest of it!

By the way, you may want to follow the link and scroll down to see pictures of Ali mocking Bush during the ceremony. The President mimed fisticuffs and The Champ called him a nutcase. Twice.

Forgive me if I'm wrong here: Bush gave a medal to a man who went to jail for refusing to fight in an immoral war in South-East Asia? Well, since they both dodged Vietnam I guess they have a lot in common except that one stood on principle and the other stood behind his dad.

Nice shot Ronald. Again, another scene that is impossible to caricature.
