shoe heaver gets slammer
Muntadhar al-Zeidi, the Iraqi entrepreneur who offered his wares to that guy who claimed to be President of the U.S., the best traditions of Iraqi bazaar salesmanship, has received a punishment of three years in prison.
Here's how it was broken down:
1. One year for throwing dangerous objects in a crowded space.
2. One year for being annoying.
3. One year for missing.
He is appealing the year for being annoying, pointing out that simply being anywhere near Iraq is annoying, and being in the presence of the Monkey-in-Chief was doubly annoying. Thus, whatever he added to the general annoyance of the moment was insignificant.
