A Not-So-Far Flung Shoe Story

Monday, December 15th 8:30am Dear Diary, Just saw that Bush has made his final visit to Baghdad, Iraq. But apparently, not all were glad to see him. During a meeting with the Iraqi prime minister, an Iraqi TV journalist threw his shoes at the president! I could hardly believe it when I saw the video! Bush avoided being hit by ducking, but it was very obvious that the journalist planned on hitting the President since the shoes were thrown with quite a bit of force. The journalist was hauled out of the room (naturally), but he wasn’t arrested or anything, which surprised me. I sure hope that doesn’t happen to me when I travel overseas. It would be pretty nasty, especially if I didn’t get a chance to duck. Then again, I didn’t start a pointless war that has already killed almost 100,000 Iraqi civilians. Wow, Bush has a lot of blood on his hands. He’s lucky that the worst to happen during his trip out there was a loose shoe. In other, slightly less serious news, Jill and I have picked out a puppy – a three-month old male German Shepherd.  I’m hoping this gives me some much needed publicity. Barack told the world that the Obamas would finally get their long-awaited puppy. But I beat them too it. It seems that the media hasn’t jumped all over how cute this is yet. And I’m still waiting for it. perhaps if I’d framed it in terms of a White House gift, it would have been a more popular story. I’ll have to continue to think up ways for this to get more media attention. Until next time, Joe the Veep Originally posted in The Secret Diary of Joe Biden
