Bush Has Great Reflexes

Mr. Bush - Quick to duck

Do you like President George Bush?  Well at this point it doesn't really matter.  All that matters is that you have a sense of humor.

A journalist in Baghdad named Mr. Zaidi threw his shoes at Mr. Bush at a conference, which is a total insult in the Arab world.  In the Muslim religion it is considered a huge insult to show the soles of your shoes because they are so unclean.

It is considered very rude to keep your shoes on in houses or even cross your legs and show the sole of your shoe to the person sitting next to you.  So it is a horrible insult to actually throw your shoes at someone.

Luckily or unluckily depending on how you look at it, Mr. President ducked and had excellent reflexes two times.

I think the whole situation is actually quite funny but I guess Mr. Zaidi really didn't like Mr. Bush and that is the only weapon that he could sneak into the conference. 

Watch this youtube video to check it out!!

Update:  Looks like Mr. Zaidi may get up to 15 years in the slammer for trying to hit the president with his shoes.. I think it's ridiculous.  Some rapists don't even get that long.  Damn justice system.
