President Bush Still Has It!


Japan Baseball BushWhile he was in Japan, former President George W. Bush threw out the first pitch before game 3 of the Japan Series currently being held between the Yomiuri Giants and Nippon Ham Fighters.

Rolling up to the mound in a Yomiuri jacket, Bush toed rubber Tuesday before bouncing one in the dirt.

He watched the game, which the Giants won 7-4 in a private box with the Japanese Prime Minister, the US Ambassador and Sadaharu Oh, the Japanese home run king.

Protesters against the military actions in Afghanistan and Iraaq  outside the stadium marched and held signs saying things like: “Arrest Bush,” “The King of War,” and “Bush Go to Jail.”

One demonstrator threw his shoes at a photo of the former president, copying the Iraqi journalist who had thrown his shoes at the actual Bush during a December news conference in Baghdad.

It’s nice to see that despite being out of office for 10 months Bush is still in mid-season form in having people hate him. That’s the experience of a veteran.
