Throwing Shoes At Blow Up Bush In DC During Inauguration

We were driving to go to our first party in DC last night at The Daily Voice when Beth noticed people throwing shoes at this big blow doll of George Bush. I tried to nab it. Will shoes ever have the same meaning again?

Jane, Marcy, Beth and myself all comment...

Just a little Inauguration fun...

UPDATE: via Wired via Marcy:

Last night, Bush also got a sendoff from activists inspired by Iraqi journalist Muntader al-Zaidi, who was detained last month after flinging his shoes at Bush during a press conference in Baghdad’s Green Zone. On Dupont Circle, a crowd gathered to chuck shoes at an inflatable Bush dummy (pictured here); down on Pennsylvania Avenue, reports Jim Wolf of Reuters, a coalition called ShoeBush.org tossed footwear between Inaugural parade reviewing stands.
