I think the President displayed agility and physical courage during the shoe attack. Though he ducked at exactly the right moment, twice, he held his ground and waved off the Secret Service agent that was preparing to knock him to the ground and cover him.
Dana Perino, on the other hand, didn't fare nearly as well, getting beat up by a violent, rogue microphone in the melee'.

I could not believe the secret service did not open up on that nut case when he went for his second shoe.

Read in the paper that showing the soles of your shoes is considered very disrespectful in that country.Throwing them is the same as saying fu%k you.

The nut case is lucky there is a new government there- otherwise he would be dead by now.

Funny pic. Dana suffers from the same thing as I...she gets allergic attacks that cause the area around her eye to swell and look like that. I've come to work looking like I was in a bar fight, before. At least she can wear make-up.

The little turkish cobbler who made the shoes can't fill the orders fast enough

ISTANBUL, Dec 22, 2008 (AFP) - The maker of the shoes that an Iraqi journalist hurled at US President George W. Bush has had to take on 100 extra staff to cope with a surge in demand for his footwear, he said on Monday.

"Between the day of the incident and 1:00 pm today we have received orders totalling 370,000 pairs", Istanbul-based Serkan Turk, head of sales at Baydan Shoes, told AFP.

Normally the firm sold only 15,000 pairs a year of the model that Muntazer al-Zaidi threw at the US president at a press conference in Baghdad on December 14 to become an instant hero across the Arab world, he said.

Turk said orders had initially flooded in from Iraq, followed by other Middle East countries and finally from the rest of the world, including for 19,000 pairs from the United States.

Formerly prosaically dubbed Model 271, the black polyurethane-soled shoes have been renamed Bush Shoes, he said.

Turk insisted the company was not profiting from the soaring demand to up the factory price from the 27 dollars (19.30 euros) it had been charging, while adding that it was "delighted from all points of view" at its unexpected success.

Throwing shoes is considered a grave insult in the Arab world, but Turk indicated that they would probably not have done Bush much harm had they hit him.

"They look heavier than they are," he said. "They only weigh 300 grammes (10 ounces)."

Zaidi, 29, has been charged with "aggression against a foreign head of state during an official visit," an offence that carries a prison term of between five and 15 years under Iraqi law.

He is to go on trial on December 31, an investigating judge said Monday, rejecting allegations by the journalist's family that he had been tortured in custody.
