If The Shoe Fits... Bush Hit By Shoes In Iraq
Lame duck George W. Bush is on his "Farewell Tour" (like Cher and Tina Turner?) of Iraq, the country he illegally invaded causing the deaths of thousands of American troops and scores of innocent Iraqis. There's nothing like one last fly-over of a country you bombed and tortured in the name of "democracy." At a press conference in Baghdad yesterday, a journalist took off both of his shoes and hurled them at Dubya. Throwing a shoe at someone is the ultimate insult in Iraq. It literally means the person is dirt and worthless. I'm in total agreement. I just wish the journalist had better aim. Dubya has some good duck and cover reflexes, I'll give him that. I wonder if he gets it from dodging Laura's shoes? Or maybe Barbara's?
