'Game of Thrones' beheads George W. Bush

This is nothing if not strange.
As one of the props for its series "Game of Thrones," the creators used a George W. Bush mask to double as an example of what happens to those who defy King Joffrey.
Per the Huffington Post, "Game of Thrones" creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss explained with a laugh in the commentary for the Season 1 DVD. "It's not a choice. It's not a political statement. It's just we had to use whatever heads we had around." http://huff.to/LnEUlC
Needless to say, not everyone chuckled, per E!, "Chairman of the Brooklyn Republican party Craig Eaton feels that this is not OK. "Whether you like him or dislike him, whether you're of the same political persuasion or not, we still have to respect the office of the presidency and all of those who hold that presidency," Eaton said, "Americans of all political persuasions should stand up and demand that things like this should not continue. They should boycott watching this particular show." http://eonli.ne/LWpdCo
