An end to Global Warming? Rainbows and unicorns fly out of President Elect Barack Obama's butt? Britney Spears finds a cure for cancer?
Surely something akin to these headlines is making news in the world today? Nope.
This is the top story on CNN:
(CNN) -- President Bush made a farewell visit Sunday to Baghdad, Iraq, where he met with Iraqi leaders and was targeted by an angry Iraqi man, who jumped up and threw shoes at Bush during a news conference.Some jerk threw a pair of shoes at President George W. Bush at a press conference in Iraq and this is the most important thing happening in the world right now? I gotta say though, President Bush moves pretty quick for an old guy. I don't think John McCain would have been able to duck that fast.
Bush ducked, and the shoes, flung one at a time, sailed past his head during the news conference with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki in his palace in the heavily fortified Green Zone.
The shoe-thrower could be heard yelling in Arabic: "This is a farewell ... you dog!" He was dragged out of the room, screaming.
