At a press conference in Baghdad, an Iraqi journalist threw his shoes at President Bush.  The guy dodges a shoe with some skill, I might add.  In the rush to subdue the assailant, Press Secretary Dana Perino was injured by taking a microphone to the eye.

For a bit of cultural reference, in Arabic tradition throwing your shoes at someone is a grave insult.

I suspect he's dodged things thrown at him before.

I'm actually kind of impressed with his reaction (not just his reaction time), and I hope he moves to pardon the guy.
