(Another) Sign Of The Times.

From the Huffington Post:

Clear Channel, the radio station and billboard powerhouse, has banned an ad for Harry Shearer's new CD "Songs of Bushmen" because it depicts George Bush with a bone through his nose, the New York Post's Page Six reports:

HARRY Shearer
 has a new CD ripping President Bush - but ads for it won't be coming to a billboard near you. The outdoor advertising arm of notoriously conservative Clear Channel has banned signs for "Songs of the Bushmen" because the cover depicts the president with a bone through his nose. 

"Their tone turned from genial salesperson to angry schoolmarm - 'This is unacceptable,' " Shearer, the voice of Mr. Burns and Flanders on "The Simpsons," told Page Six. "And it's not like this is a dangerous time to criticize George Bush."

Clear Channel didn't get back to us.

Ah, sweet irony:  the scumbags at Clear Channel called out by the mutants at the New York Post.

Rupert must be out of the office.
