Article by Mark Bowden on Bush and shoe-throwing incident.

Mark Bowden is the famed author of, Blackhawk Down–A Story of Modern War. He has written several award-winning books since then, as well as several articles for various papers.

Though Bowden is certainly no Republican, I find his thinking and writing to be honest and I can ask no more from anyone. In this article, Bowden argues that George Bush should ask that the shoe-thrower be released. And I agree with Bowden on this. As Bowden pointed out, Bush immediately joked about the situation, calling the shoe a “Size 10 missile”. He was unharmed. I would like to know what the thrower’s attitude would be if Bush asked for his release. I think it would be the Christian thing to do, and sometimes there’s nothing better at embarrassing your enemies than to offer him the other cheek.

    Awwww, you just spoiled the Dungeon Master’s Cristmas.

    Deep in an unknown part of Gitmo…..
    “What!?!?!?!? I thought I was goin’ to git to use my rack this year!” The D’ Master bleated. ” How cood Bush do this to me? I mean I’ve been waitin’ his entiwer two terms to do some good ole toof pullin and knee screwin……Ugh, it’s no use.” D’ Master dejectedly muttered.
    “Reweese the Pwisona!” D’ Master bellowed out from his torture chamber.
    Away in the darkness the skittering sound of hunchback Imps could be heard moving off to let the ‘Missile de Chausser’ loose on the world.
    The skittering sound moved closer to a shrouded, damp cell. A lump of darkness hunkered in the corner. A thin flicker of light fell across the darkness from a barely lit sconce on the opposite wall. Within this little patch of light could be seen a set of crudely cleaned and clenched teeth and if one were close enough a word barely audible could be heard repeated like a clock to count the seconds. The time piece plotting it’s next leather soled projectile target. Barely less noticeable then the wisp of breath leaving the teeth was the sound- “Cheney”.

    If Cheny is indeed Darth Vader, I’d like to see him force-choke a few of his pinko critics…
