Kicking A Man When He's Down, By Proxy

The Bush Legacy project took another hit today when a democratized, liberated Iraqi reporter hurled shoes at the president during a press conference. If you like your hostile gestures half-full, at least it proves Bush was right about something: he never should have started giving all those press conferences!

"This is a gift from the Iraqis. This is the farewell kiss, you dog," the journalist shouted (in Arabic), Steven Lee Myers of The New York Times reported in a pool report to the White House press corps. Myers reported that the man threw the second shoe and added: "This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq."
Hopefully this will the be the coda to the whole misbegotten enterprise - Bush blamed for it all and America's role in it ignored. After all, we're already spending good tax money to protect Bush for the rest of his life. Protecting the whole country from things that Iraq might want to fling (terrorists, 'cause they ain't got no weapons) is a much pricier job.

The trip to Iraq has been described as a "victory lap" by the White House. Running shoes are therefore an appropriate parting gift.

Piker, you really are clueless.

And sad. You're commentary (or lack, thereof) is meaningless.

I continually ask MD why he wastes his time and responds to your drivel.

Just for your sake, I hope that if terrorists do attack American soil in the future, you are first in line, to show them how sorry you are for Bush's protecting the US, as well as ridding the WORLD of Saddam.

Then, when you are be-headed before you know what happened, right then, at the last possible moment before you lose your life (because the terrorists don't really care that you voted for BO), you realize that you were wrong this whole time.

May God rest your soul.

You're clueless, dude. And keep the suit. You look really good in it. Hope it helps you with the babes.

Leave it to you, Piker, to side with an immoral Muslim against the USA. I think you've forgotten a few numbers. Namely the ones 9/11.

Gosh, I'm sorry... I forgot that all the Iraquis were in on 9/11.

Publius said...

Only the really onery ones!

Hey Publius, quick quiz - what percentage of the country do you think comprises the ornery ones?

Publius said...

100%... then again, I count the same number of ornery Americans!

Publius said...

... for the stinkin' French it's 200%.
