You know the story. You saw the video. And you hear how Iraqis are cheering this incident. So am I. Why?
This guy might get fined, spend some time in jail. What if he threw a shoe at Osama bin Laden, or the former Iraqi leader, Saddam Hussein?
George Bush casually swats away at the shoes. He's not worried. He knows freedom opens this door.
