The Cowboys should look at this video. I think that I just found a back-up for Tony Romo.
Let's give Bush a little credit here.
How many 62 year old men can move like this? It's a shame that the security forces didn't let Bush just go over and beat the crap out of this clown. (My money is on Texan Bush!)
What about the "shoe thrower", a.k.a journalist?
I guess that he is now ready for a show on MSNBC or a column in The NY Times.
Iraq is indeed a new place.
First, you can throw a shoe at an official guest in one of Saddam's old palaces.
Second, no one will be raping the thrower's 14 year old daughter!
Beyond the comedy, the new US-Iraq agreement is very significant.
Read what Charles Krauthammer wrote about it:
"The barbarism in Mumbai and the economic crisis at home have largely overshadowed an otherwise singular event: the ratification of military and strategic cooperation agreements between Iraq and the United States.
They must not pass unnoted.
They were certainly noted by Iran, which fought fiercely to undermine the agreements.
Tehran understood how a formal U.S.-Iraqi alliance endorsed by a broad Iraqi consensus expressed in a freely elected parliament changes the strategic balance in the region.
For the United States, this represents the single most important geopolitical advance in the region since Henry Kissinger turned Egypt from a Soviet client into an American ally.
If we don't blow it with too hasty a withdrawal from Iraq, we will have turned a chronically destabilizing enemy state at the epicenter of the Arab Middle East into an ally.
Also largely overlooked at home was the sheer wonder of the procedure that produced Iraq's consent: classic legislative maneuvering with no more than a tussle or two -- tame by international standards over the most fundamental issues of national identity and direction.
The only significant opposition bloc was the Sadrists, a mere 30 seats out of 275.
The ostensibly pro-Iranian religious Shiite parties resisted Tehran's pressure and championed the agreement.
As did the Kurds.
The Sunnis put up the greatest fight.
But their concern was that America would be withdrawing too soon, leaving them subject to overbearing and perhaps even vengeful Shiite dominance." (Washington Post)
Like the Cheney shooting a couple of years ago, the American left will enjoy this video. It will certainly be a distraction from Obama's Cabinet appointments or the scandal in Chicago.
