Not What Chalmers Johnson Would Describe as "Blowback"

While President Bush nimbly ducked both shoes hurled at him at a press conference in Iraq by an Iraqi protester expressing his displeasure over his treatment, not everyone escaped the incident unscathed.

Press Secretary Dana Perino was hit with a microphone in the ensuing scuffle and sustained a black eye in the process:

Though the shoe-thrower did President Bush no physical harm, he did provide a great visual that allowed people to ventilate their frustration and contempt for a disastrous presidency.

Duyba thought he could sneak into Iraq to run a last phony victory lap, and here you have a journalist demonstrating what people really thought of Duyba, not just within the Middle East, but throughout the world.

Now why do you think he's been doing all those warm and fuzzy photo ops with his dog Barney: he's trying to divert attention away from the incredible damage he's inflicted with incompetent, arrogant leadership.

And all this MSM apoplexy over this event reminds me of the time a patriotic citizen had the guts to throw a pie straight intp the face of Ann Coulter, who called it "an act of t.e.r.r.o.r.i.s.m".

Given the cosmetic damage Perino sustained, it's hard to tell if it's blowback or collateral damage.

And now a word from Max Factor. Makeup maximized.
