Size 10 hero

I thought this headline had to be a misprint: Bush says Iraq ware not over, ducks shoes. However, while in Baghdad, an Iraqi reporter threw shoes at Bush. The man was swarmed by security guards and taken away. Bush and Al Maliki were not hit by the shoes. But, hey! It's the thought that counts.

Bush made a joke about the incident afterward saying that the shoes were size 10. So, hooray for the size 10 hero!

He is being hailed as a hero by other Iraqis. And there have been protests for his release from jail. BTW, apparently throwing shoes is the biggest insult you can give in the Arab world. I certainly have felt like hurling my shoe at Bush on occasion.
