Yeah, Bush ducked like he has practice. laughing1.gif

You know, this would be the perfect way to deal with the financial crisis:

Let everyone have a go...At 10 cents per throw.

And if he dodges- you'll get your money back (...and your shoes, of course)!

Could we line up Paulson,Bernake,and the rest of the criminals too?

Hey...couldn't we pin this? Could we?? Could we???

I mean- it's a historical moment, isn't it???

You've got my vote DA. I think I've got a little pin room over in Research. A "second" from the staff?

EDIT: I'll move this and pin it in a while, but let's leave it here for visibility for now.

Posted by: albertchampion Dec 15 2008, 01:29 AM

it is not just that the shoes were thrown. it is that such an act is the ultimate insult in that part of the world.

when NPR WEEKEND EDITION REPORTED THIS, this was not reported.

from my pov, every iraq attending that presser should have been throwing their shoes at the mongrel mass murderer.

how many iraqis kept their shoes on?

get those numbers and you will learn the percentage of honorable journalists in iraq.

Posted by: Johnny Angel Dec 15 2008, 09:01 AM

Gotta hand it to Dubya. he knows when to duck!.. that was no Lame-Duck
If only he was that quick witted on 9/11.

I got that line from John McIntyre, the EX-Local Pitttsburgh Liberal talk show host..

I like the Idea from the above post. We can raise Tax-Revenue, charging US taxpayers to throw shoes at our Evil Leaders. The Mob used Concrete boots to sink thier swindler pals. I could figure out a way to throw Concrete boots.

OMG, all I could say last night was 'nice shot'! Bush actually looked shocked.

Seems like the MSM is doing their best to make it look like only the Arab world is hailing this incident and regarding Muntadar al-Zeidi as a hero. Every board of been on wishes those size 10's would have connected the chimps skull. The world is in awe of al Zeidi. thumbsup.gif Only wish we had such courageous journalists here in the land of the free and home of the brave.

people at democratic underground are suggesting printing this out, pasting it to thin cardboard, and mailing it to the WH:

I laughed myself silly when I saw it on TV.
Just hope the thrower had stinky feet so W at least got a nosefull!!
I wonder when the first smily will turn up....?
hehehe

something tells me that if he could have turned over the WH straight after electionday, he would have been only too glad to do so.

Hi Guinan! LTNS!!

I know, it is hilarious. The only unfortunate thing is Bush's ducking agility. From now on, though, I'm going to call him CHIMPY THE DUCK!!

If one has any knowledge of Iraq history, particularly after the advent of Islam where debates surfaced in Kufa and Basra, it was a norm of one of the debaters to throw their sandals at their opponents when discussions seemed unending!

Can we get a drive going - "Send your used shoes to an Iraqi journalist"?

It can be sold as an Iraqi National Defense initiative to protect the fledgling "democracy" from Neocons and washed-up imperial presidents on victory laps.

A special appeal could be made for worn-out crocs, particularly since every word out of this administration for the last 8 years has pretty much been a croc.

Homeland security will now ban shoes completely, not just going through airport security.

Great...

Oooohhh...
I bet George regrets that he didn't go for a "Bath in the crowd" in Baghdad.
Had he done that, he would now have something to fall back on after he leaves office...
The Iraqi people may not exactly have been thowing flowers back in 2003; but something tells me that they would certainly have contributed generously for a worthy cause such as this one:
"Dubbyah's Shoe-Emporium" !
And with the many, many contributions from all over the world, he could have even called it
"Dubbyah's International Shoe-Emporium" !!

Imelda Marcos- eat your heart out !!!

BTW- I was wondering just how long it would take- and here it already is...
Good, clean fun for the entire family- the perfect gift for all seasons:

http://blogslut.com/gwbshoethrow.html

In the meantime, Mr. al-Zaidi is evidently still in custody; he may face up to two years in jail- for "Insulting a foreign head of state":

QUOTE
Maythem al-Zaidi contacted a judge to ask him if what his brother did is a crime under Iraqi law. The judge told him that he might serve two years in prison or pay a fine for insulting a president of foreign country unless Bush withdrew the case. "If they manage to imprison Muntader, there are millions of him all over Iraq and the Arab world," Maythem al-Zaidi said.


http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/12/15/africa/15iraq-thrower.php

Naturally, this is another great piece of journalism which provides deep, deep insight into all manners of weird and wonderful details regarding famous personages such as Mr. al-Zaidi.
Like this for example:
QUOTE
Maythem al-Zaidi said that his brother is politically independent, but several people who know him mentioned that he was a Baathist who turned into a Sadrist after the war.


Ah...Mmmhhh...
"Several people who know him".
Riiight...

Posted by: Devilsadvocate Dec 16 2008, 01:01 PM

I fear this may well be the moment were the laughter should get stuck in the throat.
Because if this should prove to be true, it could spell a huge amount of trouble...

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/7785338.stm

QUOTE
The brother of the Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at US President George W Bush has said that the reporter has been beaten in custody. Muntadar al-Zaidi has allegedly suffered a broken arm, broken ribs and internal bleeding, his older brother, Dargham, told the BBC

Posted by: Rickysa Dec 16 2008, 01:16 PM

I had heard this "rumor" yesterday as well, but lack the internet savvy to locate it as truth or not....can someone help????

Rick

Posted by: Devilsadvocate Dec 16 2008, 01:54 PM

Impossible to say right now.
He evidently was in the custody of the Iraqi security service; I wouldn't doubt that they are quite capable of doing precisely that.
But there is also the possibility that his brother fell for the temptation of spicing things up a wee bit.
One way or another-
He better turn up without any broken bones.

Otherwise there is a very real possibility that people will die in that place very soon-
in large numbers...

This is what you call the "Mother of all PR-disasters"...
Just came across this:

QUOTE
"This is going viral at a rapid pace, unlike anything I've seen post-election," said David Burch, marketing manager for TubeMogul, which tracks YouTube video views. "People are uploading videos of the incident to YouTube at an average rate of 209 per hour. Currently, there are over 5,000 versions, totaling over 8,145,000 views."


Meanwhile- this is another game already doing the round... laughing1.gif

The flying shoe.
Finally a symbol of protest.

I remember getting stung by a red jellyfish once,
the entire top of my foot swelled to the point where
I could no longer wear a shoe on that foot.
Strange, it didn't really ever hurt, but simply being
unable to wear a shoe meant that I was not allowed on
public transit or in restaurants, and I wasn't allowed to work,
even though I had no trouble walking in bare feet.

I don't condone throwing shoes at anyone though.

my 2ft worth

imo, lunk

Posted by: albertchampion Dec 16 2008, 08:24 PM

there are so many shoes that should be thrown at these gangsters.

and i care to utter an arabic curse to maliki and bush: may a camel sit on the bones of your ancestors.

and i care to utter it to all the members of the us congress. and to all the us citizens that have failed to get out in the street as they did during the post-1968 anti-vietnam protests.

and yes, it is probably true that richard's explosive shoes[sic] would have been better projectiles.

later. perhaps more will follow.

They may not have hit him in the face...

But they sure hit him were it hurts him most:

Oh, they'll ban shoes...
So, they'll be throwing socks.
And they'll ban those, too.
By the time they get to their underwear,
there will be no more public speaking engagements...
Merely to prevent incidents of public indecency, of course!!!
