Bush Shoe Tosser Crying About Being Tortured

Posted by Casey on December 16, 2008

Good thing he’s in Iraq, I guess. If he were here he’d have probably been shot.

While we’ve had fun looking at the social-media mashups spun off of the Bush/shoe-throwing incident, here’s a sobering issue: The BBC reports that the man, Muntadar al-Zaidi (pictured in a BBC photo), has been beaten while in Iraqi custody. His brother told the British news agency that al-Zaidi allegedly “suffered a broken arm, broken ribs and internal bleeding.” And Arab media is airing similar reports: Raed in the Middle reports that the station where al-Zaidi worked says his hand was broken, and the blog “Roads to Iraq” relays a report from al-Sharqiya TV that the man has “broken ribs and signs of tortures on his thighs.”

I still find it amusing that this story is bigger than Gov. Palin’s church being burned down by an arsonist.

The LA Times seems to have compared the shoe tosser to Joe the plumber in a not so shocking anymore display idiocy.

Meanwhile, back in Iraq …

For those of you who think this guy represents the feelings towards Bush in Iraq … we are finding out that he is a terrorist sympathizer who is pissed his side got their asses kicked.

Ahmed recalled that al-Zeidi spoke glowingly of anti-American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, whose followers organized protests Monday to demand his release.

He’s also a huge fan of communist murderer Che Guevara, and has a major ego problem. Apparently he’s more of an attention whore than journalist … according to other Iraqi journalists.

Also not making news here in the states from Iraq is the kick ass celebration the troops had for the president while he was visiting them there. Please notice the difference in troop behavior towards Bush as opposed to Obama or Kerry.
