Projectile Loafers

At his December 2008 final press conference in Iraq, Bush showed off lightening quick reflexes when an Iraqi reporter chucked his shoes at the Commander-in-Chief's head. The reporter was quickly wrestled to the ground, subdued and arrested.

The incident was sufficiently ridiculous enough to inspire more than its share of parodies.
