Shoeless Joe Blowdulah
I don't know, folks, I guess that George Bush getting a couple of shoes thrown at him is funny, the fact that the whole episode had a cartoon-like quality to it, especially. And, yes, the mere fact that it involved President Bush, that alone, me-buckos, is probably sufficient/ripe. I mean, seriously, everyone knows just how much we love to laugh at the fellow, don't you think? And I certainly don't begrudge the late-night talk show hosts, either. That's their frigging livelihood, for Christ!! .......................................................This, and yet, I do have to admit that there is in fact a part of me that sees it differently. This, I'm saying, in that while, yes, George Bush indeed has been a bad president, I'm not exactly sure I want some Iraqi stooge throwing foot-gear at him (especially knowing what an act such as that means in that culture), either. First of all, if he had done such a thing to Saddam Hussein, the son of a bitch would have been tortured, maimed, and killed. And, secondly, that frigging stinking shoe of his hit the American flag. Not a good thing, me-buckos. Not a good thing at all. In fact, if I was there and saw it, I might have done a little tap-dancing of my own - and, no, not on the press-room floor, either.
