A Uniter, Not a Divider
December 15, 2008
For the first and probably only time in his eight misbegotten years in office, Bush has brought the world together. It’s downright inspiring to see an issue on which the Saudis, the British and the French can agree.
Of course you’ve seen the video of the shoe-throwing incident. All I can say is that Bush has the reflexes of a guilty man. He ducked like he’d been expecting something like that for years.
The man whose limo was egged during his first inaugural ceremony now prepares to leave office with people throwing shoes at him. I can’t say I approve of the actions, but neither can I say they were unfitting.
