Crudely Attacking George Bush To Sell Pizza?

I think libs may have a new favorite pizza chain[1] — at least if they’re vacationing in New Zealand:

“A complaint made against a Hell Pizza billboard featuring US President George Bush has been partially upheld by the Advertising Standards Complaints Board (ASCB).

The advertisement featured Mr Bush and the words “Hell. Too good for some evil b*stards”.

Objections were made to the use of slang in a public place, the alleged denigration of Mr Bush, and perceived blasphemy.

One of the complainants described the billboard as a vicious smear campaign against an openly Christian person.”

(Pic, with bad language, below the fold)

Even eating a pizza has to be a political issue with some people.

PS: Wonder if they’d ever put up a billboard like this about Osama Bin Laden? Why do I suspect that the answer is, “no.”
