may shoes rain on his head – and on all other occupiers

From: Muntadar al-Zaidi Did What We Journalists Should Have Done Long Ago
“When Iraqi journalist Muntadar al-Zaidi heaved his two shoes at the head of President George W. Bush during a press conference in Baghdad, he did something that the White House press corps should have done years ago. … Al-Zaidi, who paid for his courageous act of protest by being brutally beaten by security guards, is a hero of the profession.



  1. Still pres. Bush would be lucky if he is only remembered by that incident, because it neither involves killing, nor malhonesty, and it is funny. it may be even the funniest thing to ever happen in 2008. and indeed that journalist is a hero…

  2. hi, I’ve been reading your blog for a very long time… Top notch blog, really.
    I couldn’t help not comment, i wish that shoe were a bullet that hit “mushed” bush right in the head…The reaction gives shivers, but we just have to hope people will not forget MUNTATHAR the hero so fast like they forgot others…
