Protesters ‘drive’ Bush from Ireland

Irish protesters used Shakespeare to blitz George W. Bush on Saturday, invoking Macbeth, a ghost and a witch to cast a spell on the U.S. president and drive him, symbolically at least, from Irish soil.

Somewhere, Allen Ginsberg is smiling. In 1965 at an antiwar demo at the Pentagon, he led the “Out demon out” chant as protesters attempted to exorcise the Pentagon as a “grope-in” took place on the grass in front of them. (Or maybe they wanted to levitate it, I forget which!)
