Rag Head Who Threw Shoes at Bush Begs for Pardon

Rag Head Who Threw Shoes at Bush Begs for Pardon

By John Lillpop

Muntadhar al-Zeidi, the brain-dead Iraqi reporter who became a hero to millions of Islamofascists and air headed American liberals for throwing his shoes at President Bush, no longer walks with the swagger and arrogance of a proud Islamofascist.

Indeed, the reporter who obviously failed Anger Management 101, is whistling a different tune these days as he grovels on the floor of his cell begging for a pardon and an act of kindness from other rag heads in Iraq.

As reported in Breitbart, in part,: (1),

"A spokesman for Iraq`s prime minister says the journalist who threw his shoes at President George W. Bush has asked for a pardon.

"Spokesman Yassin Majid says that in a letter sent Thursday to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki the journalist described his behavior as "an ugly act" and asked to be pardoned.

"Al-Zeidi, a correspondent for an Iraqi-owned television station based in Cairo, Egypt, could face two years imprisonment for insulting a foreign leader."

Al-Zeida`s case brings with it an interesting question, "How should Al-Zeidi`s shoe toss be handled by the Iraqi government?"

As I see it, there are four plausible outcomes:

* Release Al-Zeidi so he can get look for work at the New York Times, CNN, or PBS, where his anti-American views would fit right in with the prevailing culture, or

* Release him to the care and attention of the meanest and most cruel Iranian Sunnis that will take him, or

* Hang him to death with the rope that was used to snuff Saddam Hussein, or

*Beat him senseless with Hussein`s old shoes.
