On shoes

Lesson in PR from this week:
If you can dodge a journalist’s questions with consumate ease – you
should be expected to be able to dodge their shoe with the same, if
not more, ease. George Bush has obviously learned that lesson early.
He handled that situation with grace and composure. The reporter
probably deserved a tongue lashing – he’ll be lucky to be spared a
literal lashing in Iraq. Ironically, if Saddam was still in power he
probably would have been executed. That’s the best shoe pun I could
come up with because the Facebook George Bush already used “sole
searching.” The Facebook George Bush is not me.

Wikipedia has some interesting things to say about shoe tossing. Including an
interesting look at “shoefiti” the act of throwing shoes onto a
telegraph wire. Which I was always told was to indicate drugs could be
bought nearby.
