Get Out Of Here!

Dana Perino, perky purveyor of the Administration's lies, evidently got a black eye in Bush's shoe-throwing scuffle. Bush's press secretary, with a black eye. Bush, ducking the ire of Arab soles. It's Metaphors Gone Wild!

This incident got me thinking as to why Bush was even in Iraq in the first place. He's not there to accomplish anything of significance, and I can't see how this appearance helps him in a PR sense. Given the risks involved with the trip (as can be seen from shoe-throwing incident; it could have been much worse), the only reason I can come up with is that serial murderers are often compelled to return to the scene of the crime.

I just hope everyone remembers the astonishing number of news reports of the shoe slapping when they brought down Saddam. I'm curious if it will be read and presented the same way now or if the news will just soften it and make the thrower the crazy guy.

Dillon, you're right, there's no reason to go to Iraq. It's not like he's wanted either, obviously.

V--Do you remember a news report way back when that there was a mosiac of Bush the elder on the floor of some building, so that people could step on him?
