Oh yeah, it fits.

In a fitting salute to the end of Dubya's reign of error, an Iraqi journalist flings shoes at his head.



Wear it well, George. Night night; January 20 can't come too goddam soon.

ETA Wow, color me shocked.

Don’t worry, though; Bush laughed it off. And because U.S.-occupied Iraq is such a free society, the man was beaten, dragged outside, and is currently jailed.

Mr. Maliki’s security agents jumped on the man, wrestled him to the floor and hustled him out of the room. They kicked him and beat him until “he was crying like a woman,” said Mohammed Taher, a reporter for Afaq, a television station owned by the Dawa Party, which is led by Mr. Maliki. Mr. Zaidi was then detained on unspecified charges.

Other Iraqi journalists in the front row apologized to Mr. Bush, who was uninjured and tried to brush off the incident by making a joke. “All I can report is it is a size 10,” he said, continuing to take questions and noting the apologies. He also called the incident a sign of democracy, saying, “That’s what people do in a free society, draw attention to themselves,” as the man’s screaming could be heard outside.


p.s. and PSA: for the love of God and little plastic baubles, Hugo, shut. the fuck. UP.

Whoa.

I assume that those shoes thrown at Dubya actually contained a couple of flowers in appreciation for all the good he's done to liberate Iraq, right??

I'm sure that there might be a couple of thousand of folk here in the US that would love to do such a feat here at home, too.

Way to reduce the moral character of the Presidency to a smoldering cinder of hot horse poop, Dubya.

And to think we still have to put up with his ass for 35 more days...

I'd happily throw shoes at him, though I'd make sure it was an extra cheap pair (I'm not wasting any good shoes on him!!!)

A surprisingly good way to make a statement, I think! :)
