we were admiring his reflexes here at work, too... I can only hope mine are that good at that age! I wonder if he takes defensive boxing or something. you know - to help him deal with unexpected punches and shoes from the crowds at rallies and such.

I don't agree with the 'too bad the shoe missed' comment. Not that I'm his biggest fan, but ouch. Nobody deserves that.

well, i guess getting hit by a shoe, is comparable easy to take in contrast to all the (through his actions and decisions) suffering people in the middle east.

Bush rarely watches television, and when he does, it is almost always sports.

What would have happened if the journalist managed to hit his target?
