Bernard Shaw...Wasn’t he the guy who asked Michael Dukakis that question in the 1988 Presidential debate about whether he would support the death penalty for someone who might rape and kill Mrs. Dukakis?

He certainly was. And I thank him for helping to torpedo the midget's campaign.

Bernard Shaw was the CNN reporter that was hiding under a desk during the bombing of Baghdad in 1991. Scared the hell out of him.

George Bernard Shaw, the playwrite and author, was like a child always trying to get attention by saying naughty things and upholding any outrageous value he could find.

He loved Stalin and the 'Boleshevik experiment' so much that he made a well-publicized trip to Ukraine in 1931 at the beginning of the Soviet enforced famine and wrote that he threw his lunch sack out the train car window because "there's no famine here!" The Soviets showed him what he wanted to see in staged Potemkin villages while Stalin had ordered the seizure of Ukrainian food and up to 10 million Ukrainians starved to death.

Shaw never acknowledged any personal errors, and seemed to live his long life with a huge chip on his shoulder from his childhood family problems.
