A gift from the Iraqis

In case you missed it...somehow...Iraqi journalist Muntadar al-Zaidi threw his shoes at President Bush. He shrugged it off afterward as someone "trying to get attention". Well...seeing the event was covered by every major news source in the world...I'm pretty sure he met his goal. But if he cared at all about what he said (in Arabic): "This is a gift from the Iraqis; this is the farewell kiss, you dog. ... This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq."...then he'd know he didn't do it for the attention...but go ahead, brush it off...just like he shrugged off thousands of soldiers' funerals and the deaths of countless others as collateral damage that have died because he doesn't care. Thirty three more days of George Bush is thirty-three days too many.
