Bush ducking to avoid the first thrown shoe

Bush ducking to avoid the first thrown shoe

An Iraqi journalist hurled insults and both of his shoes at lame duck President George W. Bush at a press conference in Baghdad earlier today.

The President ducked to avoid being hit by the flying shoes and the man that threw them was quickly accosted.  Nobody was hurt and neither shoe connected, but the situation made for some funny photos.

Now that there’s a President-Elect, people are less afraid of letting Bush know exactly how they feel about him.

Update: Here’s the video of the lame duck ducking.
