looking for that part of me that got tossed aside when I grew up
In the Arabic world the foot is one of the dirtiest things there is. It's a huge insult to step on something, especially a picture. I remember seeing video of people taking off their shoes and hitting it against pictures of Saddam when Baghdad fell... so the throwing of a shoe has special significance.
I saw this, the news said throwing a shoe over there is a great insult!! Bush did a pretty job job dodging the shoe, where was the Secret Service?? I didn't see them until the end. I'm for Obama, but it still bugged me to see our President getting shoes thrown at him. Go figure!
That is hilarious!
