An Iraqi Insult - Shoes Hurled At George W. Bush

Ok, this is funny!

McClatchy identified the man as Iraqi television journalist Muthathar al Zaidi and reports he threw both of his shoes at Bush just after he finished prepared remarks.

The New York Times notes that the first shoe “narrowly missed” and the second shoe also missed. “This is a farewell kiss, you dog,” Zaidi shouted.

Would've been a fine early Xmas present to see that first shoe hit Bush in the kisser.
