Video: Iraqi journalist chucks shoes at Bush's head

During a "surprise" visit to Iraq, George W. Bush held a press conference, during which an Iraqi journalist called him a "dog" and launched two shoes at the president. The man, who screamed "this is a goodbye kiss from the Iraqi people, dog," was later wrestled to the ground. The BBC, which has the remarkable video, reports that in Arab cultures, the "soles of shoes are considered the ultimate insult."

"Dog," I would imagine, comes in a close second.
