BAGHDAD - The Iraqi journalist who threw shoes at then-President George W. Bush was convicted Thursday of assaulting a foreign leader and sentenced to three years in prison, lawyers said. He shouted "long live Iraq" when the sentence was read.
The verdict came after a short trial in which Muntadhar al-Zeidi, 30, pleaded not guilty to the charge and said his action was a "natural response to the occupation."
You know, I really didn't get why all the Progressives were laughing about the guy throwing a shoe at the President.
Now, I'm laughing at the guy who was stupid enough to throw a shoe at the President.
