I’m really not the kind of person that wants nations that we liberate to lick our boots in gratitude (well, maybe just France), but I wonder if this guy stopped to consider where his right to hurl his shoes in protest came from? Or what sort of painful, torturous end he would have met had he done so, as a Shi’ite, under Saddam’s regime (and I find it strangely ironic that Saddam's lawyer is clamoring to defend him)? Just a thought.
As a side note, having watched the video of this bizarre episode going down, I have to say: George W Bush has the reflexes of a panther. Gerald Ford would have caught both shoes right in the beak.
I would have issued additional cool points if Bush had caught both shoes and nailed his assailant with them.
