The family of the Iraqi shoe thrower shouldn't be the only group of people protesting the Iraqi journalist's sentence--especially since many on this side of the world thought, "Brilliant!" when they saw the image of those shoes flying toward Dubya on the news. I mean, even now, the shoe antagonist has inspired others to think of ways to use the shoes on their feet.
For example, what about a group heading up to Phoenix to throw some shoes at our Gov. and state legislators? What an image. Shoes cascading down on... well, what about our lovely Frank Antenori? Look in our morning daily coverage on the house's OK for abortion curbs. From good 'ol Frank, R-Nut Heads: We have "a duty to protect either our wives or our daughters from making decisions that may come back to haunt them further down the road in their lives."
Luckily, Frank has never met my mother (she can scare the plants off any Republican), or dozens of other women who do not need anyone's help in making decisions. I thought you Nut Heads were all about less government in our lives? If this is the case, then certainly we don't need state government intervening on our behalf ... and obviously, we need to throw some shoes.
