And he would have probably landed a sweet realestate deal from Rezko!

Throwing shoes. What an advanced culture these Arabs have. The incident put me in mind of Kipling:

"...Take up the White Man's burden--
And reap his old reward:
The blame of those ye better,
The hate of those ye guard--
The cry of hosts ye humour
(Ah, slowly!) toward the light:--
'Why brought he us from bondage,
Our loved Egyptian night?'..."


etc. etc.

I can't think of any reason why spitting on someone is more advanced than throwing your shoes at someone. Clearly if you wanted to insult Bush throwing your shoes at him was the best option.
