Of Shoes and Ships and Sealing Wax …


I love the creativity – throwing shoes at Bush!  Unfortunately, all of Dubya’s working out has kept him quicker on his feet physically than he is mentally or verbally – so he was able to duck both missiles.  Still, the “hurling” was well-deserved … and a tame reminder of the level of outrage that is understandably felt in that part of the world.  Bush, of course, made an exceedingly meaningful comment afterwards:

“This is the end!” shouted the man, later identified as Muntadar al-Zeidi, a correspondent for Al-Baghdadia television, an Iraqi-owned station based in Cairo, Egypt.

Bush ducked both shoes as they whizzed past his head and landed with a thud against the wall behind him.

“All I can report,” Bush joked of the incident, “is a size 10.”

What an asshole.

In other news, HollyCornblog is still in the hunt for a berth in the Phantastic Phootball Phanatics Phinals versus Phatcats.  She’ll need six points from the Eagles’ DeSean Jackson to win and move on.  (That is certainly within reach.)

Meanwhile – in closing – I am trying to decide which version of “You Don’t Own Me” is best.  So far, I’m thinking Leslie Gore wins hands down.  What do you think?

Bette is a strong second!  (And as an aside – it’s kind of fun to mute the Bush video and play “You Don’t Own Me” while watching the shoes fly at him!)

PS  Go Eagles!!!
