Ali, boxer or symbol of Muslim pride

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

Submitted by Thomas Earl Cannady (United States), Nov 29, 2005 at 22:32

Well who knew President Bush was in such trouble that he needed to award a medal to Ali. Seems like he should have given it to Will Smith, he did an ok impression of Ali in the movie. His politics certainly match the President's more than Ali.

Oh well I guess the republican party is on the rocks to such a point that their favorite democrat Senator Clinton was not there to give her blessing to this obvious pr blunder. Next I will be given an award by General Pace for "outing" the United States Marine Corps as not quite the lady's men as we thought they were.
