Supposedly, throwing your shoe at someone is like the worst Iraqi insult.


The shoe has been used in political protest in other ways.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabotage

Origin
Sabotage is a term of French origin coined during the railway strike of 1910, when workers destroyed the wooden shoes, or sabots, that held rails in place, thus impeding the morning commute.[citation needed] An alternate definition claims the word to be older by almost a century, the times of Industrial Revolution. It is said that powered looms could be damaged by angry or disgruntled workers throwing their wooden shoes or clogs (known in French as sabots, hence the term Sabotage) into the machinery, effectively clogging the machinery. This is often referenced as one of the first inklings of the Luddite Movement. However, this etymology is highly suspect and no wooden shoe sabotage is known to have been reported from the time of the word's origin. [1] Others contend that the word comes from the slang name for people living in rural areas who wore wooden shoes after city dwellers had begun wearing leather shoes; when employers wanted strikebreakers they would import 'sabots'/rural workers to replace the strikers. Not used to machine-driven labor the 'sabots' worked poorly and slowly. The strikers would be called back to work (with demands won) and, could win demands on the job by working like their country cousins - the sabots. Thus 'sabotage'.

Here in America, we all know what the worst insult is.  But he's leaving us in just a little over a month...

I don't care if it were Clinton, Bush, Obama or Reagan.....I'm not crazy about the idea of some scumbag attempting to harm the President of the United States.  Democrat or Republican.

Thankfully they have zero athletic ability over there.

That's like saying you don't care for someone attempting to harm the POTUS (regardless of party) by flipping them the bird.

Or throwing a jelly doughnut at him.

Thank God we liberated Iraq and brung 'em free speech and all...

What they needed was a second shoe thrower.  Then they could have gotten him in a shoe-cross-fire.  If they timed it right when Shrub ducked the first shoe he would have caught one right in the kisser from the second thrower by which time the original thrower would have launched another.

If they'd have really wanted to make a statement though, they could have gone for shock-and-awe and tossed in several pairs of heavy steel-toed work boots all at the same time.  Sure, they may have taken out a press secretary and other random staffers.  But, you know, collateral damage and such is hard to avoid!  And besides, they were asking for it by standing nearby.

Valid point, Oat, but the flipside is, you invade my country, displace over 2 million citizens, kill somewhere between 25 times as many people as were killed in 9/11 and possibly up to 250 times as many, all on bullshit pretenses, I'd say you'd be lucky to have the extent of my personal displeasure with your policies be a fucking shoe toss.  

I would probably be a little more reluctant to throw a jelly doughnut because, well, it is a jelly doughnut after all... MMMmmmmmmrrrmrmm, jelly doughnuts...

I look at it as you still had an animal attempting to harm the POTUS and he had enough time to do so. I really don't care if it were a jelly doughnut or a shoe. What scares me is the lack of timing by the secret service.

Eitherway, I'm just anxious to get our boys and girls home and out of that region of the world.  They can kill each other off for all I care.
