Send Bush Your Shoes

Citizens for Legitimate Government, a multi-partisan activist group established to expose the Bush Coup d'Etat and oppose the Bush occupation in all of its manifestations.

Send Bush Your Shoes!

America: We were unable to give President [sic] Bush the boot, but we *can* give him the shoe!

It is time to carpet the lawn of the White House and carpet both the lawns of Bush's new homes.
What better way to stand in solidarity with
Iraqi television journalist Muntadar al-Zaidi?

Send virtual shoes, too! A CLG reader wrote, 'I urge everyone around the world who thinks it appropriate to email George Bush at president@whitehouse.gov a picture of a shoe.'

Damn, He Missed!

Iraqi journalist Muntadhar al-Zaidi shouts "this is a goodbye kiss from the Iraqi people, dog," and hurls his shoes at Bush during his press conference in Baghdad.

In the Arab world, merely displaying the soles of ones shoes (e.g. putting your feet up) is considered quite rude. To actually throw them at someone is a major insult. When Saddam Hussein's statue was toppled after the invasion, many in the crowd threw shoes at the fallen statue.

Deny, Deny, Deny!

Today's International Herald-Tribune editorial about Bush's recent interview on ABC begins: "We long ago gave up hope that President Bush would acknowledge his many mistakes, or show he had learned anything from them. Even then we were unprepared for the epic denial that Bush displayed..."

Indeed! I think Bush took his cue from the 1967 movie A Guide for the Married Man.
