More on Bush and Shoegate

A judge has ruled that the Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at George W Bush during a press conference was, in fact, beaten. This is a bad thing.

I am having trouble taking the above-linked article as seriously as I should, however, due to the following:

The Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at George Bush was beaten afterwards and had bruises on his face, the investigating judge in the case said today, as a senior cleric in Iran urged others to wage a “shoe intifada” against the US.

I loled.

Meanwhile, a Turkish firm claiming to be the manufacturers of the shoes responsible for the epic collision has received “tens of thousands” of orders following the incident.
