Reporter Throws Shoes at Bush in Iraq


President Bush paid a surprise visit to Iraq today... presumably the last such visit of his administration.

At a press conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, Bush spoke in defense of the Iraq war. After closing his remarks with a “Thank you” in Arabic, television reporter Muntadar al-Zaidi screamed insults at Bush and threw his shoes, one of which narrowly missed hitting the President.

Bush was not injured, but al-Zaidi got the living crap kicked out of him.

Would anyone expect anything less?

I just saw the video of this. Poor Bush. I bet he can't wait for January 20th.
