Bag’s Take-Away:
"The last head on the left is George Bush. George Bush’s head appears in a couple of beheading scenes. It’s not a choice, it’s not a political statement. We just had to use whatever head we had around."
That’s what the “showrunners” of Game of Thrones had to say about the fact that one of the heads that appears on a spike in the series is, in fact, a replica of former president George W. Bush. Of course, their too-cute disclaimer begs a question: How is it they happened to have a decapitated version of George W. Bush “hanging around”?
