Bush takes a last visit to BaghdadAnd an Iraqi journalist threw a shoe at him. Here we see him ducking. Iraqi Prime Minister Al-Maliki doesn't seem to be much fazed by the shoe attack.
I won't be surprised if at every interview and news conference (if there are any) that Bush does between now and Inauguration Day - which can't get here fast enough - that he'll require all reporters to remove their shoes before they come into the room.
It wouldn't be much notable except for the extremes his administration has gone to keep Dear Leader Bush from hearing any kind of dissent or discontent in person. (And, no, trolls, I don't recommend throwing shoes at the President.)
