Who’s To Blame For Zidane’s Head Butt In The World Cup? Why Bush, Of Course! By Betsy Newmark
Did you know that it was Bush’s fault that Zidane headbutted Materazzi? Apparently, it is.
Zinedine Zidane, who is of French and Algerian ancestry, head-butted an Italian player who insulted him. Although Zidane in an interview Wednesday would not say what words provoked him, a lip reader hired by the Times of London claims Marco Materazzi called Zidane “the son of a terrorist whore.”
That’s pure trickle-down politics. From the White House to the soccer pitch, “terrorist” has “cooties” and “your mother wears combat boots” flat beat as the top playground potty-mouth slur for the 21st century.
Who’s surprised? The Bush administration has been scattering the word like ticker tape on a Manhattan parade. Old McDonald left the farm for the NSA, and now it’s here a terrorist, there a terrorist, everywhere a terrorist.
Of course, now that Zidane has said that he was never called a terrorist, there goes the hook for that whole column.
