The Bush Shoe Incident
You’ve probably already seen the video of the Iraqi journalist hurling his shoes at President Bush during a news conference in Iraq over the weekend but if you haven’t, we’ve embedded it at right.
It has sparked reactions all across the spectrum. Some folks watch the video and admire the president for his dexterity at dodging the shoes. Some find the video highly amusing. Others wonder how good of a job the Secret Service is doing, since the journalist managed to hurl both shoes at the president without being tackled.
Some are horrified at the disrespect shown–regardless of their feelings toward the president’s actions. And news outlets are reporting that many people in the Middle East are rallying behind the journalist in support of his actions.
