Angry Arab Shoes!

Here’s more on the importance of flying shoes in the Arab world. The Angry Arab News Service relates the following story:

Asad Abu Khalil, a Lebanese-American professor at Stanislaus University in California, wrote in his blog that he had early childhood memories of watching his father hurl shoes at the television whenever a certain Lebanese politician appeared. “The flying shoe speaks more for Arab public opinion than all the despots/puppets that Bush meets with during his travels in the Middle East,” Khalil wrote at”

Brian Donohue on is promoting a new model, Tight Spiral, shoe featuring an autograph from Muntadar al-Zaidi. Should sell well in the Middle East, and even here.

    I haven’t heard much about the Secret Service Detail. I’m hoping that they’ve
    heard a lot about it in the last few days. Whatever you think about Bush, the
    detail should have protected him better.

    Jah, Tom, I wuz thinking that too! What if that were Obama there? We gotta have him protected better than that, right?

    Thanks for your comment, Tom!
