This has to be one of the funniest presidential episodes I’ve seen in a number of years. During Bush’s farewell visit to Iraq, an angry (pissed-off is more accurate) Iraqi threw what I imagine were his shoes right at the president’s face! The Iraqi has to be given credit on two counts, a great arm – pitched both shoes straight to the face- and for having some big cojones -it takes some nerve attempting to do something to the president of the country that is occupying yours… remember Abu Ghraib or Guantanamo?
I also have to give credit to Bush’s reflexes though, he ducked those shoes as if hiding is all he’s ever done in his life.
