Iraqis Stage Special Puppet Show in Honor of George 'n' Condi!

Effigies of US President George W. Bush and his Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice lie against a wall as Iraqi followers of radical Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr get ready to take to the streets of Baghdad on October 18. (AFP/Ahmad al-Rubaye)

Oh, hey, what's this? al-Sadr is going to stage some special show in honor of Condi? Neat! That's so totally nice! I assume they're going to totally greet Pantomime George and Pantomime Condi as liberators 'n' stuff. Uh, oh! Hey, you crazy kids, keep those things away from the fire:

Oh no! They burst into flames! What could have caused such an unfortunate accident? I'm sure the people are scrambling around, looking for extinguishers. Oooooh, too late:

What's the moral of this story? I dunno. Something about fire-retardant pajamas, maybe?

But you know what? I bet that McCain/Palin supporters will be putting on superfun puppet shows just like this dedicated to Obama any day now! It's bound to be more delightful than, say, shooting a bear in the head and covering it with Obama signs. That kind of humor is just too broad for my tastes.

Um, I should probably clarify that I don't really like puppet shows like this.

Oh sure, like Condi would carry that bag and wear those shoes.

Why does Bush have a popsicle? Or is it a frozen yogurt treat?

As for the link, obviously it was Obama supporters that shot the bear cub and put the signs up, just to make McCain supporters look crazy and dangerous.

Mystery solved, Rush Limbaugh style!

I'm guessing you'll find these puppets more to your liking, PSP.

Karen Zipdrive, I think those shoes are the dominatrix boots that Condi wore on her trip to Germany.

You'd think those fucking Sadrists would have the common decency to get a decent pair of boots for their Condi effigy, for God's sake.

Jesus, even the grabastic Code Pinkies do better than that.

Burning things publicly can be risky.

'round about 1991 I took part in a Queer Nation demonstration having to do with anti-gay legislation in the UK. (I bet someone here remembers.)

It involved burning a flag.

Damned thing was fireproof.

Dang. Anonymous on flag burning was Kindly Uncle Glenny.

No, those are cheap flats with black knee highs- definitely NOT from Condi's domanatrix collection.

Hey look, public protests! That's a healthy sign of democritude. Mission Accomplished! Can we go now?

Oh, those crazy kids were just having some fun! Sometimes, though, flames can get out of hand. Must've been windy that day. I'm sure everyone was bummed out and had to settle for going inside for punch and cookies.
