Praise the Lord and pass the shoes

I wish someone had the sense to put together an impromptu bucket brigade of shoes for Muntadar al-Zaidi. Alas, that he had only two shoes to throw for his country.

I admit that the act is somewhere on the wrong side of the line between assault and protest. But given all the other lines than have been crossed brazenly and remorselessly, crossing that line is forgivable. I hope he is released soon. I wish our Congress had demonstrated the same guts that he did.
