Shoe Thrower Jailed for Three Years

Well, no matter how much of a hero you are to the people, heads of state cannot let a thing like this go I suppose. Muntadar al-Zaidi, the heralded thrower of loafers, has been jailed for three years.

I’m just going to throw this out there: three years actually seems like a remarkably short stint in the joint for an offense like this, even in the States?

This is proof that whatever we are doing over there in Iraq is not working. Too bad Obama is keeping 50,000 troops over there until 2011. I just hope when we are finally out of there and the civil war begins that we don’t go back. If Obama starts thinking about re-election he would be better off to get out now. Too bad they didn’t take Biden’s advise and divide the country.
