At some point, we were all that shoe

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Not to belittle the danger posed to our democracy by airborne knock-off Italian footwear, it's difficult to watch this video on YouTube and not empathize with the Iraqi journalist who threw not one, but two shoes at Bush today during a press conference. Video is below, and below it are the screen captures, blow by blow, as it were. And by the way, throwing shoes is something you do at a dog in mediterranean cultures, at least where my people are from. And as calling someone a dog is probably one of the nastiest things you can do in the Middle East, Im wondering if that's part of what's underlying the shoe attack.
