A Tale of Two Shoes

During a news conference in Iraq this morning, President Bush was attacked by an Iraq reporter who threw his shoes at Bush. The man shouted, "It is the farewell kiss, you dog."

The President ducked and avoided being hit by the Iraqi man's shoes, which were chosen as projectiles because soles of shoes are considered the ultimate insult in Arab culture.

Of course the media is reporting, "The embarrassing incident marred a visit meant to show off the improved conditions since the troop "surge" dramatically reduced casualties to U.S. troops."

It seems to me that this proves the victory and triumph of the troop "surge" as only in a free society could an asshat like that get away with a such a shameful stunt.
