Flying shoe, don't bother Bush

December 15, 2008 | 11:30 am

George W. Bush, Iraq, shoe incident, Muntadar al-Zeidi The editorial board is about to weigh in on Muntadar al-Zeidi, the Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at President Bush at a press conference yesterday. The piece is likely to talk about the symbolism of footwear in politics -- there's a rich history of shoe incidents -- before discussing the meaning of the protest. Knowing us, we'll find a way to lambaste Bush while still expressing admiration for his ability to evade incoming projectiles.

Anyway, now's your chance to help the board's headline writers. Offer your witticisms below, and we'll pass the best ones on to the opinion section's copy chief for possible use. Admittedly, it's hard to write a headline for a piece that's not yet written. So don't worry about being relevant, just be funny.
