One Shoe, Two Shoe, Red Shoe, Blue Shoe

Posted by TheJOTUS on December 18, 2008

Unless you live under a rock, I am sure you have seen the video of an ungrateful, ingrate Iraqi “journalist” throwing his shoe at President Bush.  Actually, both shoes.  As Austin Powers said: “Who throws a shoe? Honestly! You fight like a woman!” 

Quick question:  Where the hell were the Secret Service?  At least the Prime Minister’s security detail were on it:

Mr. Maliki’s security agents jumped on the man, wrestled him to the floor and hustled him out of the room. They kicked him and beat him until “he was crying like a woman,” said Mohammed Taher, a reporter for Afaq, a television station owned by the Dawa Party, which is led by Mr. Maliki. 

Crying like a woman.  That makes me giggle.  No offense to my fellow women readers.  This wanna be billy bad ass tries to be a tough guy, but ends up like Bronson Pinchot (Balki) in True Romance. 

I thought it was great how Bush was essentially laughing after the first shoe.  On the second one, he was still smirking.  Look, I have my issues with the Prez.  Especially after the past two months.  But regardless of  his politics, I still think he is a cool guy.  Afterwards, Bush insisted he wasn’t insulted by the whole event.  And like I said, after seeing his smirk, I think he meant it.

By the way, nice attempted block by the Iraqi Prime Minister.

However the left seems to be relishing in this.  Like a figurative penis lathered in lotion in one hand, and a box of tissue in the other, they are rubbing one out over this assault on the President.  The media and the left are absolutely coming (pun intended) out of their skin to teach us that in the Arab world, “throwing shoes at somebody is a supreme insult.” 

Hmmmmmm, I wonder what would happen if this guy had thrown his shoes at Saddam Hussein?   Oh wait, he wouldn’t have.  Because he would have been a grease spot if he did.  But he does so to the very person–and Country–who gave him the freedom to do so.  So in this Iraqi journalist’s sand filled head, George W Bush is the bad guy?  Are you kidding me?  Jerkoff.

Perhaps, according to the left and media, Saddam had it all wrong.  He shouldn’t have been oppressing, raping or murdering millions of his own people.  He should have been slapping them with his shoes!!  Because after all hitting someone with a shoe is considered the supreme insult. 

In the end, the reaction from the Iraqi people was regret–if not shame:

Saeed Naji al-Ibadi, a 49-year-old pharmacist, said: “There’s a reaction against this journalist and his improper behavior as he represents the journalists and educated people in our society. Because he should have rejected the American president with his pen or by embarrassing him with his smart questions, not with his shoes. I totally reject this behavior because it will damage the rights of individuals.”

“I spent five years in Saddam’s jails,” said Saman Qadir, a 51-year-old mechanic. “This journalist has to throw flowers on Bush, not a shoe, because Bush saved the Iraqi people from a bloody regime. Malaki has to raise a case against this journalist.”

Nasir Mahmood al-Bahadli, 52, an academic said: “We are Arabs and we have a good reputation in hospitality with enemies before friends. The American president also was accompanying the man who represents the Iraqi government and this made it worse because this journalist also abused the prime minister with his behavior.”…

I think Saman Qadir represents feelings of the overall Iraqi people.  And frankly, I think this is the overall feeling of the American people.

    I think there was a time where this type of behavior would have been dealt with harshly by the American people. They would have been demanding action and felt insulted themselves. This shows how much apathy the entire country has for W, both the right and the left. I did admire his reflexes. I don’t think I could move that fast.

    Oh yeah, Bush can stand up to a shoe, but not the press or the Democrats.
