    While I’m no fan of the Iraq War, I seriously doubt that a journalist would have done that to Saddam. I’m sure that fact will be overlooked.

  • uh, what?

  • scott

    Thrown his shoes, that was what the journalist did wasn’t it?

  • yeah, i know what you typed. i just don’t get what you’re suggesting.

    Are you saying:

    a) that the Iraq War has created the space for Iraqis to express their displeasure with the condition of their country (via means including the hurling of their footwear)?

    b) Saddam wasn’t no giggly punk bitch?

    Thanks in advance.

    and now are we saying Bush is a punk b*tch…

  • i have no idea *what* we’re saying.

  • ladyfresshh

    Well…I’d like the say the President has fast reflexes and a good sense of humor

  • The responses are funnier than the video LMAO!!!!

  • Steve

    I’m quite impressed by his reflexes for real…

    and the fact that he took it in stride…

    the whole thing is just, amazing.

  • the black scientist

    hold on a second, who did that?
    oh, the guy without shoes.

    not the smartest way to try to give someone a lump, but probably one of the funniest. bush’s reflexes are aight, but i’m pretty impressed by the force put behind that shoe.. watch out mariano.

    oh, for a shoe to have landed square on that forehead.
