Unfortunate Homecoming for Bobby Fischer

It looks like Bobby Fischer, a genius at chess but apparently a demented fool in every other respect, is on his way home. Renouncing his American citizenship is getting him nowhere with the Japanese, who detained him after he tried to leave their country for the Philippines on a revoked US passport, according to ABC News. The Japanese intend to ship him back to the USA, where he will face charges for violating sanctions against the genocidal Yugoslav regime by playing a match there in 1992. He would prefer to go to Iceland, where he is relatively popular for putting that island on the map when he took the world title by beating Boris Spassky there in 1972.

Fischer's moonbat credentials are impeccable. A hater of both Jews and America, he has denied the Holocaust, calls the United States an "evil dictatorship," and had this to say about 9/11: "wonderful news. . . . I want to see the U.S. wiped out."

A prison term of as long as 10 years may await him when he arrives. Too bad we can't put the like-minded Ward Churchill in the next cell. The two would make good company for each other. But apparently promoting terrorism is not against the law.

No word yet on whether Fischer will appear on Real Time to be fawned over by Bill Maher.


Bobby Fischer ponders his next move. Should he withdraw his queen? Or flick his Bic and set that flag on fire?

"Too bad we can't put the like-minded Ward Churchill in the next cell"

Do you thinh Wart Churchill can play chess?
If not Fisher could actually get bored and enable his basic thinking processes.
And then who knows what may happen.

Yes, the man is a complete arsehole.

Good question about Mental Ward being able to play chess. Maybe they should stick to checkers.

You inspired me to write my own piece about Bobby. I remember him from before he was a moonbat.
