Shoes for Bush

On Bush’s surprise visit to Iraq, an Iraqi Journalist threw his shoes at him.

In the middle of the news conference with Mr Maliki, a reporter stood up and shouted “this is a goodbye kiss from the Iraqi people, dog,” before hurtling his shoes at Mr Bush, narrowly missing him.

“All I can report is a size 10,” Mr Bush said according to the Associated Press news agency.

Surprisingly witty for dubya – and also good reactions on display. He waves off the security guys who were about to bundle him out. Honestly, this is probably his most impressive performance of the whole presidency.

I give people the truth unfiltered by rational argument

I believe that the government that governs best is the government that governs least.. and by these standards we have set up a fabulous government in Iraq

Reality has a well known liberal bias…

Think about it! I haven’t!

Bush has to sit there and he gets absolutely rinsed… I’m amazed that in this day and age the spin doctors allowed this. It’s absolutely heartwarming that it can still happen. Very funny.

He also starts to attack the whitehouse correspondants (see about 10 minutes in)

I’d like to welcome you to Washington DC, the chocolate city with a Marshmallow centre…

Lots of people are looking quite annoyed but trying to appear to be in good humour, several are looking genuinely amused. The majority of people in the room seem to be really enjoying it – the speech gets a bit weak when it gets to the ‘press secretary’ section.
