President George W. Bush ducked a shoe thrown at him during a press conference in the Iraqi prime minister’s office. Bush wasn’t hit by the shoe, which sailed over his head. The president shrugged and said “I’m OK” after the incident in Baghdad today.
The ungrateful Iraqi fanatic who fired the shoe was reportedly "wrestled to the ground and taken away." Professional American freedom-extractors based at Abu Ghraib are doubtless convincing him of the error of his ways even now.
“It doesn’t bother me,” Bush said. He said it showed free speech in a democracy.
