So, Mr. Bush, how does it feel to be the most hated man in the world?
Posted by Jill | 7:42 PM
Think about it...this is a world that has Robert Mugabe in it. "Baby Doc" Duvalier is still alive, even though he's in exile from Haiti. There are some pretty nasty operators in the world, and yet George W. Bush has managed to elevate himself to the level of one of the most hated people in the world.

CNN's femnewsbot and Michael Ware, who has all but admitted that too much time in Iraq has made him unhinged, try their best to put lipstick on this particular pig, but as Ware points out, in the Arab world, tossing your shoe is about as big an insult as you can get.

(Note: Be sure to click on over to the Crooks and Liars link above, and then click over to the Men's Journal article with Michael Ware. He's like the entire Iraq experience wrapped into one person. Astonishing and appalling stuff.

I believe that might be the shoe that the swiftboat retard claimed John Kerry had stolen in that timeless Morning sedition piece...
and the shoe that probably represents America's lost identity and the looting of Iraq.
I join that journalist in his disgust that Bush would dare to visit the country that he has destroyed with his heavy handed and inept management style, lack of ethics and disregard for the law.
We have our shoe back now...
lets all throw it at Bush!

Put another way, if Bush had ditched his security detail, and walked through some of the neighborhoods outside the Green Zone, would he have been "welcomed as a hero"? ;)
