Inane Quote of the Day
"The guy wanted to get on TV and he did. I don't know what his beef is, but whatever it is, I'm sure someone will hear it."

George Bush, referring to shoe-thrower and hero Muntadar al-Zeidi
Yeah, who knows what the "beef" is of someone yelling "This is a farewell kiss, you dog. This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq."? It's a mystery.
Yeah, Mr Prez, indeed, people heard it and have demanded Mr al-Zeidi's release.

Not only does Bush's reaction show his cultural ignorance, but it also shows his insensitivity to the plight of Iraqis after six years of occupation and the arrogance of a warmonger.

If you've got a Facebook account, you can join a group, as I have done, to support the journalist. Type Muntadar al-Zeidi in a search on that site and follow the link.

UPDATE @ 4:36 PM (h/t Ten Percent): Al-Zaidi Remanded Into Custody After Court Appearance
