Missed size 10...

A couple of months ago, Steve Ballmer was treated with eggs thrown at him by a college grad while addressing an audience in an University campus. So now, it was Bush's turn. While Bush was in Iraq, delivering his farewell speech on Sunday evening in Baghdad, a man identified as an Iraqi journalist, Muntadhar al-Zaidi threw shoes at him but missed it by a whisker.

Bush here acts really smart and his reflex action is superb. He dips at the right moment and evades the shoes. Well the Iraqi Premier, Nuri al-Maliki also did his bit of immediate spur-of-the-moment rescue act.

The journalist was yelling in Arabic, "This is a farewell ... you dog!" . "You killed the Iraqis!"

A little later, Bush replies to the press, "That was a size 10 shoe he threw at me, you may want to know."

"So what if the guy threw his shoe at me?"

"Let me talk about the guy throwing his shoe. It's one way to gain attention. It's like going to a political rally and having people yell at you. It's like driving down the street and having people not gesturing with all five fingers. ..."

More details here at BBC news.

I am sure Bush is not going to forget this farewell treatment for the rest of his life. This also sets an alarm for him to be extra cautious for his forth coming farewell addresses, which I am sure, is lined up in his schedule before he hands over his baton to Obama.
