WHAT is it with Iraqis and footwear?

In 2003 one of the iconic news images of the invasion was of local Iraqis pulling down a statue of Saddam and then hitting its face with their flip flops. There seemed to be something profound in the act.

And now, President Bush gets two shoes thrown at him by an Iraqi journalist during a news conference. 

I trust the secret service inspected the missiles to make sure they weren’t laced with anything.
