Don't Let The Shoe Hit You On The Way Out...

call me an asshole, but THIS just made my day...

President Bush made his last surprise visit to Iraq today, and, well, the press conference in Baghdad didn't go so well.
His appearance at a news conference here was interrupted by a man, apparently a journalist, who leaped to his feet and threw one shoe at the president, who ducked and narrowly missed being struck. Chaos ensued. He threw a second shoe, which also narrowly missed Mr. Bush. The man was roughly 12 feet from the lecturn in the center of two rows ofchairs, about two feet from a pool of reporters. A scrum of security agents descended on the man and wrestled him, first to the floor and then out of the ornate room where the news conference was taking place. The president was uninjured and brushed off the incident. “All I can report is it is a size 10,” he said jokingly. An Iraqi accompanying the pool of reporters said the man had shouted, “This is a farewell kiss, dog.”

I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. Except that I have an awful cold and laughing makes me hack and sound like a 90 year old woman who has smoked three packs a day her whole life...I love Iraqis!
