    It would have been pretty awesome if a Secret Service agent dove in front of the second shoe. It would have been something straight from a Saturday Night Live Skit.

    I would have killed to see Bush catch it and throw it back or just dive at the journalist in anger

    The journalist is a hero and Bush is just that little bit more liked.

    Re: Shoes thrown at Bush on Iraq trip

    My thoughts :

    Bush is an prick. He's probably the worst president I'll ever get to see short of the president who decides it'll be a good idea to use nukes again. He's a guy who I'd probably have a beer with but wouldn't let him try to fix a working clock. Yes I'm serious. He's a guy who's jokes have annoyed me as a liberal. He's a guy who has sent my family members to fight a war I don't believe in. I don't like him.

    However, he is still the President of what is still the most powerful country in the world. He's been the most protected man for the last 8 years for a reason. He's the CinC of our military. He's a guy who aside from all his faults doesn't deserve to be disrespected at least in such a classless manner. I don't even think he needs to be disrespected to show disagreement with him.

    We do not live in a time where dissent needs to be shown as physical savagery. If this same journalist had voiced his dissent at Bush through his work then I'd be behind him 100% but he didn't. He chose a road where his motives won't be remembered. All people will remember is that he threw a shoe. Not caring about why. I don't know why Sirdan Sirdan shot Kennedy. I don't know why Lennon's killer pulled the trigger. I don't know why some guy threw a pie at Bill Gates. I just know they did it. They didn't get their message across. All they did was put their names in the headlines long enough for people to remember them and not their motives.

    A hero to whom? Liberals in Berkeley and Europe maybe.
