The idiot Iraqi reporter who threw his shoes at G-Dub has apparently had the shit beaten out of him while in custody.
According to The Guardian
“The Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at US president George Bush during a press conference has been beaten in custody, his brother has claimed.
Al-Zaidi hurled his shoes at Bush as an insult, his family claims, as he blamed the US president for the thousands of Iraqi deaths since the invasion of his homeland in 2003.
He has been hailed as hero by some and rallies across the Arab world have called for the al-Baghdadia TV journalist to be released.
This is not the first time the young reporter has been the subject of news reports.
In November last year, the Shia journalist was kidnapped as he walked to work and held for more than 48 hours. On release he said his captors, who were suspected of being al-Qaida members, had questioned him about his work and beaten him.
In January he was detained by American troops searching his building but released after a day with an apology.”
This guy should be beaten, and why should we apologize for searching his building and detaining him, who knows what was found during that search. God knows if it were an American over there who had thrown a shoe at one of their political dignitaries he would be killed, hung, or had his hands cut off.
This is extremely disrespectful to our country, regardless of who the President is, and shouldn’t be tolerated.
On a lighter note – good to see that G-W still has the reflexes of a man half his age. With moves like that, he could probably handle 4 more years in the White House? No? 🙂

Finally got around to editing the video footage that WBSD Intern Daniel shot of Shawn Watson doing a demo at the MBAC in mission bay. Dan was able to get in a MBAC chase boat and follow Shawn as he was riding, and got an exclusive heads up for the site!
