Iraqis Shower Bush With Free Shoes

by | 15th, December 2008

GEORGE Bush is offered a free pair of shoes and the Washington Post reports today:

Iraqis demonstrated in the streets Monday demanding the release of the journalist who hurled two shoes at President Bush during a press conference on Sunday, as Arabs across the Middle East hailed Bush’s assailant as a hero who reflected their anger at American policies.

Says he:

It is not until the 9th paragraph that the Washington Post reports that the only ones protesting in support of al-Zaidi are the followers of anti-American Iranian-backed extremist Muqtada Al-Sadr who holds a minority of influence in the Iraqi Congress.

The Sadrist block holds only 30 seats in the 275 member Parliament.

Still – an attack where no-one got hurt seems like good news…
