So listening to the radio on my drive to work this morning, I hear the teaser for the top hour ABC news report. The reporter says, "Bush's surprise trip to Iraq tarnished." Of course he's referring to the "Shoe Incident" during Bush's trip. For those who haven't heard the liberal media gleefully report about this yet, basically what happened is a journalist, undoubtedly Keith Ubermoron's Iraqi counterpart, awash in BDS flung not one but both his shoes at President Bush during a press conference. Since seeing is believing:
Now, a blogger I read describes what happened to the man after this incident. Apparently, the man and his family were arrested, his wife raped in front of him and then the entire family was thrown screaming into a wood chipper.
Oops, (and further stealing from the same blogger) that's what would have happened to him had he tried something like that if Saddam Hussein was still in power instead of being a stinking, rotting corpse. But thanks to the American military and its Commander in Chief George W. Bush, he has the freedom of speech to make a total sphincter of himself.
In my mind, there is no better vindication of the liberation of Iraq. Freedom has been brought to the people of Iraq though Bush's resolve, even the freedom to be an ingrate.
Bush, as is normal for him being the (to a fault) gracious and kind-hearted man that he is, waved it off. Said something like, "All I can report is it is a size 10."
What you also probably haven't heard is that immediately after the ingrate was hauled out multiple other Iraqi journalists stood up to apologize to the President.
I'm sure everyone would prefer that it hadn't happened, no one likes a heckler, but the fact that he was even able to heckle vindicates the entire thing.
