"This is a farewell kiss, you dog"

During a surprise visit to Iraq, Bush had not one, but two size 10 shoes thrown at him by Muntadar al-Zeidi, a reporter for Al-Baghdadia television. Unfortunately Bush ducked and wasn't hit by the shoes.
It was also unfortunate that the reporter called Bush a dog, an insult to dogs and dog lovers everywhere. In Iraq, throwing shoes at someone is a sign of contempt. People threw shoes at the statue of Saddam when it was toppled after the 2003 invasion.
Bush should probably stick to giving speeches at A&M, one of the few places where people can still stand him. Two faculty members organized a small protest when he was chosen to deliver a commencement address on Friday, but county Democratic chairwoman Maggie Charleton said his visit wasn't worth making a fuss over. ''I don't like George W. Bush. I don't think he's been a good president," she said. "But, you know, in a little while, he's going to be gone. Not a moment too soon, thank goodness. Why bother?"

This is the biggest event of the century.
The courageous act of the unknown Iraqi scribe should be an eye-opener to the Monarchs, kings, princes of the Gulf.
Hats off to the Iraqi.
Bush deserved it. My only grudge is that the shoe didn't land in the ugly face of the century.

Thanks for your comment. I totally agree with you. The American press with a few exceptions let bush get away with everything. Bush shoud get the same sentence as Saddam.
