Shoes for Bush

Can the Bush administration get any less popular? A little more than a month before he steps out of office, George W. Bush goes on a last "victory tour" of Iraq. During a press conference last night, an Iraqi journalist threw shoes at Bush, shouting "This is a farewell ... you dog!". Throwing shoes is reportedly the gesture of ultimate contempt in that part of the world.

Like throwing rotten kamatis or smelly tinapa at a certain Filipino politician, not that I'm trying to suggest that or anything...
