I couldn't say it any better than the Iraqi journalist who called McBush a dog and flung his shoes (both of them!) at the Current Occupant.
Of course the boy wonder in the presidential Under-Roos was oblivious to the fact that shoe-throwing is the highest insult one man can offer another in Middle-Eastern culture and likened it to an American free-speech issue and said the guy wanted to bring attention to himself.
January 20, 2009 cannot, I repeat, CANNOT come soon enough.
The scariest part, though? No secret service goons were anywhere to be seen until well after the guy ran out of shoes to throw. If he'd had a weapon, the Evil Dick would be president right now.
