Well the Iraqis finally threw something

So it wasn't sweets and flowers for the "Great Liberator" but the journalist who finally lost his cool and threw his shoes at Bush in Baghdad today did call it "a goodbye kiss -- you dog." Apparently in Arab culture, the throwing of the shoes is the ultimate insult. The video is priceless.

Word has it that Bush was unhurt but Dana Perino suffered a black eye from a wayward microphone in the ensuing melee in the press gallery. Apparently Bush took his mouthpiece with him as he snuck in for his final peek at the country he ruined in the name of freedom. Maybe Bush will buy her one of the famous five dollars rugs from the bazaar as well so she'll have a more long lasting souvenir of her trip.

It's ironic that Iraqis have the freedom to express their contempt for that baboon while the Dixie Chicks are still in the doghouse.

Well the guy IS in custody last I heard but I saw a headline that says he's become a hero in Arabian circles.
