It's official: Bernie's off the deep end

I'm looking forward to the Alzheimer's campaign featuring Bernie. Button was targeted because he qualified so far back? That's right, the thieves sat around watching Speed TV and said, "Let's go get that wanker!" How they magically knew which car he was in and when exactly he would pass by is to remain classified. OK, enough rambling, here's the story:

"I've been coming here for more than 40 years, not just for the race," Ecclestone told Reuters on Sunday at the Brazilian GP when told of Jenson Button's near mugging. "I've run on the beach here in the morning early with watches on and never been mugged, never seen anyone being mugged.

"Normally like in America or anywhere you go there are people getting mugged. In London, it's a funny thing you know - surprising in Oxford Street the number of people that get mugged there hourly," he declared, referring to the crowded central shopping thoroughfare.

Ecclestone, who got into hot water last year when he suggested Adolf Hitler was a man "who got things done", said Button might have kept out of trouble by qualifying higher up the grid.

"They look for victims, they look for anyone that looks like a soft touch and not too bright," said the billionaire, whose current girlfriend is Brazilian.

"The people that look a bit soft and simple, they will always have a go at.

"I think here for the race weekend they probably watch TV and see who's not qualified in the top 10 and think well they must be a bit stupid otherwise they would qualify in the top 10 obviously. So they are victims."

Ecclestone inquired, with feigned ignorance, where McLaren's Button had qualified. Told it was 11th, he replied: "There you are you see, I have to rest my case."

Actually, he was questioned about the reported Jenson Button incident on SpeedTV's pre race show.
"Someone probably just tried to sell them a hat," was his comment.

What a hypocrite! I really think that someone needs to give him a push to retire. He'll never nominate anyone else, he's senile!
