If the Shoe Fits, Throw It

I watched TV pretty much nonstop all day yesterday, but didn’t hear a word about this heartwarming display of bad manners on Monday. In case you missed it too, go here for the full article and pictures.

President Bush was given an Iraqi-journalist-style sendoff on his last full day in office Monday, as tourists and demonstrators lobbed shoes, pumps, boots, sandals and Crocs from Pennsylvania Avenue onto the White House lawn.

Before launching the operation live, the shoe-chuckers took target practice in Dupont Circle on a 20-foot-tall blow up doll of the outgoing president, decked out in the flight suit he wore aboard the “Mission Accomplished” aircraft carrier.
