Gaahhhh. We've all had a good chuckle at George W. Bush's shoe-dodging the other day. We may even have marveled at the fact that the guy chucked not one but two shoes without being stopped by the Secret Service (what if they'd been grenades?). But we probably didn't give too much thought to what would become of the guy.
If I were President Bush, I'd have said let the guy go. No harm done, probably not much could have been done, so maybe make him sweat in an interrogation room for a few hours, and then let the guy go. But there is word that it might be a whole lot worse than that. For throwing loafers. Oy.
