22. Hell, Bush laughed at it.

He thought it was funny. He didn't realize that throwing shoes at people is the consummate insult in the Middle East.

and the shoe would have left a big smudge in his makeup after he was too slow to dodge it

28. A big ole

Shaq shoe. There was one of his real shoes on display at a sporting goods store uptown where I live and as folks can imagine it was enormous. It was hard to believe that that shoe actually fit someone.

25. No, he's alive and well, fortunately.

Following the incident, Al-Zaidi was represented by the head of the Iraqi Bar Association at trial.[11] On 20 February 2009, al-Zaidi received a 90-minute trial by the Central Criminal Court of Iraq.[12] On 12 March 2009, he was sentenced to three years in prison for assaulting a foreign head of state during an official visit. On 7 April, the sentence was reduced from three years to one year.[13] He was released on 15 September 2009 for good behavior, after serving nine months of the sentence.[14] After his release, Al-Zaidi was treated for injuries and later said he planned to "build orphanages, a children's hospital, and medical and orthopaedic centres offering free treatment and manned by Iraqi doctors and medical staff."

There is no way he could move as fast as Bush did then. Bush was 62 and in great shape for his age.

34. Maybe you don't know anyone killed in the war Bush started

But I lost two of my students in Iraq. That was an entirely pointless war. Hundreds of thousands of people didn't have to be displaced or killed, but Bush thought it would ensure his re-election.

I will never miss Bush. I will never find amusement in his goofy antics. I can only see the lives and families and communities he has destroyed for his own vanity. Trump may be horrible and disloyal to the United States, but his crimes simply do not measure up to Bush's.

36. Sorry, it was just a joke. I was drafted during Vietnam

 

Your students volunteered, it was their choice. The friends I lost had no choice. Your students were proud to be doing their duty. For us it was: The unqualified leading, the unwilling to do, the unnecessary, for the ungrateful.
I am sorry for your loss.

the economic draft; the existing economy of that period gave young people few options beyond military service.

for 17 years if we had the draft. The average person does not care unless a war touches them directly. At least now returning soldiers are not spat upon, they are honored as they should be.

Which reminds me, was Individual 1 kind enough to remove Nancy's shoe from his ass, clean it, and return it to her?

31. My all time favorite. I watched the live broadcast.

And I really did fall on the floor, roll around laugh.

Just a perfection this. Camera angle is is great, the thrower is perfect. The ducker is perfect. The timing of the whole bit is perfect.

Thank you for this!
