I never wrote about the shoe thrower, but Maggie's assessment is spot on.

1 Exactly! What bothers me so much is that in addition to the laughing, there is some kind of retarded assumption that just because I don't agree with P.E. Obama on MANY things, I would enjoy a shoe being thrown at him. It would make me sick. And it makes me sick that people think I'm lying about that, because it is 100% true. To think I'm lying about my respect for the office of the president and my belief that the office - whether "my guy" is in there or not - deserves and requires a certain amount of respect is only to show that a certain segment of our society have tragically lost something morally. Something absolutely necessary for a civil society. I would not applaud someone throwing a shoe at Ahmadinijad, either, and I showed up at both the Columbia and UN Protests against him. Thanks, Code Pink, for helping to create an environment where throwing shoes at world leaders is seen as "funny" and "cool" instead of a world where people can actually talk about their differences.

2 One can't win intellectual victories with Nikes. Especially when they are wearing those Nikes to protests against sweatshops in Asia. Heh. Sorry, couldn't resist. But I seemed to see a lot of that at the protests I went to!

3 Good observation, AFW! It's hard to live a "pure" life. We're so brainwashed by those big bad capitalists. We're all victims ... sob ... I bet some of those protesters drove to their life-defining events in SUVs.
