Iraqi Journalist Throws Shoes at President Bush

Showing the bottom of your shoe to another person is a terrible insult in the Middle East.  Want to top that?  Throw your shoes at your nemesis.

President Bush ducked twice as an Iraqi reporter threw his shoes at him during Bush’s farewell trip to Iraq.

From the BBC:

The man, later identified as Muntadar al-Zeidi, a correspondent for Iraqi-owned Al-Baghdadiya television based in Egypt, shouted “this is the end” as he hurled them at the American leader.

According to the reporter on the video, the journalist yelled out, "This is a farewell kiss, you dog!"

Dana Perino received a jab from a microphone as security struggled with the reporter, leaving her with a black eye.
