I ducked myself when I saw it...

Well...I really have few words for this.  I wonder if Bush actually said anything specific to set off this shoe-throwing contest or if it was just the opportunity that this reporter was waiting for.  Training day-in and day-out for this moment ...the moment where he could throw his shoes at BUSH.

He would only get 2 chances...if that!  How small a window of opportunity.  I'm sure he trained hard.  Unfortunately, Bush has been training too.  That "duck/dodge" was the duck of no amateur.  That was a professionally trained dodger.

"You have to respect this man's restraint. With nearly 1,000,000 Iraqis dead as a result of George's war, flying shoes are practically flowers and candy." -Micheal Moore

oh and did you here the reporter screaming at the end?  He was surely hurt.  It seemed everyone laid a firm hand on him to ensure he subdued.  And Bush...with his usual dumbfounded face.  Wow.

Bush obviously didn't see anything wrong about this either...I think someone should have informed him on the Iraqi form of disrespect before he made these comments...I welcome 2009 as well!
