The other day an Iraqi journalist in Baghdad, Iraq, took his shoes off during a speech by President Bush and threw them at the President (and now faces up to 15 years in prison). That’s crazy, right? But the story has taken an even crazier turn. An Egyptian man was so impressed that he has offered his 20-year-old daughter in marriage to that journalist. The father said, “I find nothing more valuable than my daughter to offer to him.” The daughter is okay with this idea, saying, “This is something that would honor me. I would like to live in Iraq, especially if I were attached to this hero.”
To that, I have to say, WHAT?!?
Even if you agree with the journalist’s idea of throwing your shoes at President Bush, how can you support it THAT much? That guy is NOT a hero!
The world is a crazy place…
