This story is all over the Internet. But it is just too full of irony and poetic justice not to post.
Man Throws Two Shoes at Bush in Iraq
"This is a farewell kiss, you dog!" shouted the protester in Arabic, later identified as Muntadar al-Zeidi, a correspondent for Al-Baghdadia television, an Iraqi-owned station based in Cairo, Egypt.
Bush ducked both shoes as they whizzed past his head and landed with a thud against the wall behind him.
"It was a size 10," Bush joked later.
Bush's comment, of course, shows that he has no realization of the culture that he is dealing with. You do not even show the bottoms of your shoes to someone, unless it is to insult them. It is like rubbing the other person's nose in filth, in shit. And throwing your shoes at someone is the ultimate sign of contempt. But of course, Bush just tries to laugh it off. Like the complete insensate limb he is.
