Throwin' Shoes

So, this morning I was told by many people to watch the video of shoes being thrown at GW. So I did, and a funny thing happened. I actually felt BAD for the guy. Yes, a person throwing shoes at a press conference is funny as hell, but how terrifying must that situation have been? To now know what's coming next? I mean, the guy only threw shoes, but he could have done something much worse. As far as insults go, I'd say he gets the top prize. Throwing your shoes at the president of the US and calling him a dog? And he had damn accurate aim, too. Was it just me, or did anyone else wonder if there was a Puerto Rican mom in that audience, whippin' chanclas? Or um, is that something that we're not supposed to tell other races?

I thought it was hilarious.. and yes.... agreeing with you.. scary. With the fact that some people put bombs in their shoes, yes it could've been a lot worse.

I thought it was funny myself. I do feel a little sorry for the guy. I mean he is loathed so openly by so many people. It has to effect even an idiot like GW.

HH and I couldn't figure out why no one moved until after the second shoe was thrown.
