Rush Limbaugh: Bush Keeps Cool as the Shoes Fly
You raise an interesting point about this. One of the things that I've noticed, the Drive-Bys are ecstatic with this. The Drive-Bys think it's the coolest thing in the world, wish they'd have done it themselves. They're thankful for this guy who threw the shoe and they've gone into great detail explaining that this is one of the most profound insults in the Arab world is the sole of a shoe, filth and dirt, you stomp on your opponent's face with it and that's cool, and they're wishing they coulda done it. This guy is a hero to them.
Sam Seder: Incoming!

Dubya got a real kick out of this. In Saddam's day this reporter would have been fed to the plastic shredder, after being forced to watch his wife and daughters get gang-raped.
