5. I hope so, too. I'm betting he DID bring an extra shoe-
He hopefully thought ahead to how cold his foot would get, too. :D

Anti-war protesters have thrown shoes outside the gates of the White House on President George W Bush's last day in office.

About 500 people marched to the White House and threw about 40 pairs of shoes at the gate while tourists looked on and took photos.

Supporters said they were acting in solidarity with Muntadhar al-Zeidi, the Iraqi reporter who threw his shoes at Bush during a news conference in Baghdad in December.

The event was sponsored by the Washington Peace Centre, the local chapter of Iraq Veterans Against the War and other groups.

Organiser Jamilla El-Shafei said on Monday that the event allowed protesters to express their anger over Bush, who she said was "leaving with no accountability for eviscerating our constitution".

22. Exactly! This arrest really sums up the Bush administration's...
attitude about our American right to free speech. (Not to mention what total wimps they are in the face of criticism...)
