It was a strange weekend for Pres. Bush. By now, I'm betting you saw the video of Mr. Bush ducking as two shoes were thrown at him during a news conference in Iraq. If not, click here to see the drama. We're impressed with Pres. Bush's quick reflexes. And, gosh, it was nice of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki tried to reach out and stop the second shoe.
The man who tossed his size 10 shoes is Iraqi journalist Muntather Zaidi. He's a correspondent for Baghdadiya, a satellite TV channel that's out of Cairo, Egypt.
"This is a gift from the Iraqis. This is the farewell kiss, you dog," Zaidi said, according to a pool translation.
Zaidi is being hailed as a hero to many in the Arab world and beyond.
What do you think of the incident?
Should Zaidi face jail time for what he did?
