    I am most definately white trash. How else could I call someone something if I didnt know it. My mom trained me well in the art of shoe dodging. (kinda funny how in Arabiaville its absolutely horrible to throw a shoe at someone and 35% of poor white people get the same treatment from their mom)

    And an even heavier blow to the hard gainers of America. Steel toe boots.

    In many Asian cultures, hitting someone or touching someone with the sole of your shoe or even the bottom of your foot is considered very insulting. Since humans walk on their feet, it would be like walking on someone. To the person who threw the shoes, he was trying to degrade Bush.

    So . . . damn, he musta done somthin'

    I was completely shocked when I saw the footage. I can't believe how fast Bush acted. BOTH shoes would have hit him had he not moved. I was really disturbed by the whole scene and am thankful he didn't get hit. I thought Bush handled this situation very well.

    However, it seemed to take the Secret Service too long to react, as the guy was able to throw the second shoe. I wonder if heads are going to roll as a result of this.

    In Arab culture it is one of the top insults. Remember when the Saddam statue was pulled down during the invasion? The Iraqies took off their shoes and beat it, or trampled on it, and hence showed the sole of their shoes as an insult towards Saddam.

    I would compare this insult as calling a black man by the N word or calling your mother a whore.

    Bush is actually in pretty good physical shape for his age, especially considering the job he has had for the past eight years.
