Lame “duck!”

Posted by Brian on December 16, 2008

You know, it’s easy to get all snarky about the Iraqi guy throwing his shoes at Bush during a press conference. But my immediate response is far more somber.

Just think about it. THe current American president, the “leader” of the free world, is so unpopular globally that foreign nationals are throwing shoes at him. I repeat… so unpopular that foreign nationals are throwing shoes at him. What does that say about how the world views us? Say what you want about CLinton’s shortcomings, but at least people around the world didn’t rtreat him like a carnival game.

Frankly, I was happy to see such a visceral response. I long ago grew sick and tired of seeing that clown treated with respect and defference that he didn’t deserve.
