Bush gets shoes thrown at him in Iraq

President Bush is hilarious in this scene.  An Iraqi tv journalist literally threw two shoes at him during a press conference and called him a dog.  A pretty major insult from muslims (dogs are considered unclean and you shouldn’t show the sole of the foot to anyone, let alone throwing a shoe).

In case you remember way back when, Iraqis were throwing their shoes at the big statute of Saddam that was being pulled down shortly after the invasion.

One thing you gotta say is that he handled it with remarkable aplomb.  And, he’s got wicked fast reflexes.
