"Crazy Twirl"

Reader comment on item: Muhammad Ali v. George W. Bush

Um... I don't think the "crazy twirl" as you put it was meant to be an Anti-War statement, and I think you're claiming it to be so is a HUGE stretch.

Did you stop and think the "crazy twirl" was for trying to "fake box" Ali? Wouldn't anyone in their right mind be crazy to fight the greatest boxer of all time? Especially one with an ego as large as his belts?...
