BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- A man identified as an Iraqi journalist threw shoes at -- but missed -- President Bush during a news conference Sunday evening in Baghdad, where Bush was making a farewell visit.
This is pretty funny news coming in from Baghdad; a journalist went wild. Bush nonetheless showed that he is still as quick as a cat in how he ducked down from both size ten shoes.
The journalist after he was taken away told reporters he was hoping the US President would sign his shoes for his kids to have and didn't realize he had tossed the shoe that hard. The journalist said, "I thought baseball was the American past time; and Mr. Bush the President couldn't catch a simple toss!"
The President was fine, even joked about it saying, "I told him to toss it; and he flung it; and he didn't tell me he had two kids; and that I'd be signing two shoes."
We're just happy the Iraqi prime minister tried to catch the shoe but his tightly tailored suit restricted his reach.
