Iraq: The Land of Flying Footwear

Here's that incredible clip from YouTube of that "journalist" in Iraq flinging his shoes at President Bush during a news conference with the president of Iraq.

Granted, an attempted assault on the President of the United States isn't supposed to be funny, but I can't help but laugh at this:



There's an Al Bundy joke in all of this, and I'm trying to find it.

I saw this footage earlier...the Prez. made a great feint to the left...the idiot was really flinging those shoes! Great reactions, George, but where was the secret service? Were they pulling a Kennedy?

In the clip, the Secret Service comes rushing in after the second shoe is flung. (That second one just missed his head.) Have to give the Prez credit, as he basically laughed the whole thing off. ("That was a size 10.") But that guy will be serving some jail time...

Yeah, mighty quick reflexes on GW for a guy as old as he is.
