Bush Ducks in Iraq

President Bush, in a news conference with Iraqi President al-Maliki, had two shoes thrown at him by an Egyptian journalist. The President was nimble in ducking the first shoe, and unafraid as he stood in to duck the second. I was suprised by the lack of Secret Service reaction after the first shoe was thrown.

    Your Honor,
    He stood his ground without fear and carried on with his interviews. Cool guy.

    And we all know that now that democracy has been brought to Iraq, that guy is still alive. Footless perhaps, but alive.

    I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist this.

    Your hero is the same guy that tripped and fell while choking on a pretzel, right?

    Back to our regularly scheduled program ….

    Please define what you are talking about.

    Who is “your”?
    Who is the “hero”?
    who the “guy”?

    Are you talking to me or my buddy, Jim?

    Define the “pretzel” story.

    Shoes! I guess it was the reporters way of giving Bush a tongue lashing. It also showed that the reporter had a lot of passion in his “sole” 🙂

    What a “heel”. I’m glad he could “shoehorn” a last trip to Iraq in. If only he were more “instep” with America, we wouldn’t have given his party the “boot”. Oh well, i’m sure it won’t be “lasting”.

    Shoe humor. It’s really an unplumbed medium .

    (now plumbers, OTOH ….)
