Iraqi Journalist Hurls Shoes at Bush

It was George w. Bush's farewell press conference in Baghdad, a joint affair with Iraqi p.m. Nouri al Maliki.

Perhaps sensing the need to seize his last chance, Iraqi television journalist
Muthathar al Zaidi took his shoes off and threw them at Bush saying, "This is a goodbye kiss, you dog."

Bush ducked the toss and it was discovered afterward that the shoes weren't Shrub's size anyway,.

You can watch the video of the incident here:

Bush might be getting older, but I'm impressed with the reflexes. Must have practice at home.

You're right, he can be pretty quick when he's trying to stay out of harm's way.
