2nd best use of shoes I've seen...

Calling someone a dog and showing them the soles of your shoes - especially up close and personal like - are kind of like ultimate insults in their culture. An Iraqi journalist tosses several insults at Bush on his farewell to Iraq tour:



And ya want your So Called Liberal Media? There it is in Iraq... 99% of our right wing corporate owned and controlled media don't have the balls to editorialize like that. Most of them have problems just telling the plain truth.

(h/t Booman for the story and bumblebums for the MSNBC video)

[update] Via Tengrain at Mock, Paper, Scissors:
Our own Scissorhead Laura has a great idea.

Awesome idea!

I had thought that holding a shoe in the air would be a great at demonstrations. One of those few things that the Preznit’s SS wouldn’t take from you as you enter a place where he is scheduled to mangle the English language.

“Bare your sole for Bush!”

But Laura's idea is much more practical...

A lot of people seem to be thinking the same thing here: "He’s got great reflexes for an old dude."

You would too if your BFF was the shotgun wielding neoconservative cheney. Bush is lucky the irate Iraqi wasn't playing horseshoes with hand grenades...

Some democracy they have over there, they have him in jail. It's not like the darn shoes were lethal! Btw; who was that politician that was caught with turkish money?

I think it was Ney who was getting money from the turks... But they rounded him up in the casino side of the Abrahmoff scandals.
