  • Got Shoes

    Well im sorry but this is to funny.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/15/wo...5prexy.html?em

    But his appearance at a news conference here was interrupted by a man, apparently a journalist, who leaped to his feet and threw one shoe at the president, who ducked and narrowly missed being struck. Chaos ensued. He threw a second shoe, which also narrowly missed Mr. Bush. The man was roughly 12 feet from the lecturn in the center of two rows ofchairs, about two feet from a pool of reporters. A scrum of security agents descended on the man and wrestled him, first to the floor and then out of the ornate room where the news conference was taking place.

    The guy was 12 feet a way throwing shoes the size of a brick and couldn't hit him?
    that sounds like a good idea trooper.

    To be fair, he was probably loaded up on adrenalin (think about what he was doing) making it harder than usual to control his fine motor skills. The man has balls though.

    How embarrassing.

      Here is a picture of Mr. Shoe from this article.

                  That was easy. He got a lot of practice ducking from solving any issues through his terms in office.

                  You can also clearly see in the photo that there was interference with the throwing arm. The guy did have a lot of skill - both would have been headshots.

                    No shiite!
                    If those had been knives he might have killed him.
                    But the old man does move pretty fast and he didn't back down either.
                    Wouldn't want to be the shoe thrower when they get him back to Abu Ghraib though.

                          At least he has a sense of humor, from "strategery" to this ""All I can report is it is a size 10," Bush quipped."
                          Hope the new guy is as flexible.
