I'm probably alone in this, but I find the shoe-throwing neither amusing nor laudable [View All]

Like him or not, and I happen to loathe him, Bush is still the President for another month or so. The guy was a journalist, right? Couldn't he have WRITTEN something extremely critical of Bush? No, he just had to lose his cool and assault him. He must not be much of a journalist.

And for those who say, "Oh well, it was only a SHOE," I've got a size 10 wingtip I'll gladly bounce off your head, and see if it hurts. Watch the BBC video -- the guy didn't just lob the shoe; he fired it.

Violence is never the answer. I hope this "journalist" is punished. I'm sure he already has been.

Perhaps if we are visited by Chinese leaders, we should throw things at them? I don't think so, but all of you who think the "journalist" is a hero should at least be consistent, and get your shoes, rotten eggs, tomatos, etc. ready.
