Iraqi journalist who took off both of his shoes and then
threw them at President Bush, missed him both times we can
now report in what is already being lamented as what could
possibly have been the last great belly-laugh of the Bush
spokesman for laughter told this website:
wants to see President Bush being missed by a flying shoe
like this. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity that
has been missed here."
first shot: The Iraqi journalist has the element of surprise
here. This should have been his best shot because he has
time to take the shoe off and aim. However he seems to have
been so keen to throw the shoe that he just hurled the shoe
journalist then removed the second shoe and hurled that
shots missed by a similar amount.
of the shots:
Had the Iraqi journalist lowered his shot, George Bush may
then have crouched down and then would have been hit in
the kisser with the shoe. This would have been the king
of all Bushisms.
Why didn't the journalist take both shoes off and then throw
them? He seems to have removed his shoe, thrown it, removed
the other shoe and then thrown that one. What he should
have done was remove both shoes and then thrown them - that
way he would have had a better chance of hitting Bush with
the second shoe because he would have had better balance.
an after attack interview the journalist is believed to
have told our reporter that he removed the Odour Eaters
from his shoes before going in to the conference to further
maximise the attack. "It was a physical, psychological
and smelly shoe attack," he may have said.
