Bush Gets The Boot

I love this. 

Bush has to duck twice as an Iraqi journalist flings shoes at him, with impressive accuracy.  Afterwards, in his stupidity, he fails to realise that throwing shoes in the Muslim world is not a protest but an insult.

    that was quick ducking. I wonder had he been practising.

  2.  

    I get a message saying the video is not available in my country or domain. Is this being censored in the US?

  3.  

    Search on youtube for Bush and shoe. Or look for Muntadar al-Zeiri, the angry journalist.

  4.  

    If you are in the US you can see it on the BBC News website:

    I’d love to do that to Mary Harney, Bertie Ahearne and Brian Cowen in that order. I think stilettos or a heavy work shoe with steel caps might be best.

    George W. Bush sickens me to my very core. The man is dispicable.

  7.  

    i believe bush was heard to mutter afterwards “Did i put my foot in my mouth again or what the fuck just happened”

  8.  

    Completely wrong. A terrible mistake by Muntadar al-Zeiri, He should have know better.

    Soft shoes, ffs.

    …..Or don’t they have Doc Martin boots in Baghdad? A far more effective and accurate piece of flying footwear.

    Kae — Practising? Being an idiot, maybe.

    Elle — Football boots with sharpened studs.

    Dr Orgasm — A filthy swine. Good riddance to the chimp.

    The Law — He said, Uh, ah, eh, uh?

    Hoof — Maybe there’s an opening for the design of military-grade casual footwear.

    I was able to see the video in other places, I am still puzzled by the message I received following your link Bock. I don’t suppose the US would be censoring Bock, based upon the assumption that they acted with any common sense.

    Knowing that particular assumption is ludicrous makes me wonder even more.

  11.  

    I’d say they might be afraid of me. After all, I did manage single-handedly to bring GW Bush to his knees and get Barack Obama elected.

  12.  

    Pity throwing anvils isn’t the accepted form of insult in Iraq.

  13.  

    so, thats what a shoe bomber looks like.

  14.  

    Gerry — Unfortunately the shoes were just training-blanks.

    Tessa — Yes. ACME anvils. The very thing!

  15.  

    As the direct descendant of a Moneygall shoemaker, President Obama will be ready for incoming shoes from day 1 – Bring them on!

  16.  

    Wonder is Bush doing any ‘sole’ searching on his 8 disastrous years?

  17.  

    I thing G.W.BUSH have been doing a research on shoe soles as he afterward said it was a 10 no. Shoe. . .

    Hey jokes apart guys. . . . Bush really deserved it, luck dog just got away by an inch

  18.  

    Shoe-thrower should be reprimanded for being a bad marksman

    Typical Arabs, always missing the target – just like they did in the 6 day war

    Anonymous — That is a truly moronic comment.

    Typical Idiots, always leaving stupid comments – just like No. 19 above
