The Tonight Show with Jay Leno
Looks like we’ve finally found something President Bush is good at — dodge ball.
As you know, yesterday in Iraq, President Bush was attacked by a shoe-icide bomber.
President Bush was speaking at a news conference in Iraq when a journalist threw two shoes at him. Here’s what he did to keep from being hit — something he’s never done before — he leaned to the left.
Even Bill Clinton was impressed. He is an expert at ducking shoes . . . and ashtrays . . . and lamps . . .
Late Show with David Letterman
Bush was in Baghdad at a press conference, and a reporter jumped up and started heaving shoes at him. He was screaming, “Here’s your farewell kiss, you dog.” That’s the same goodbye I got from NBC.
They arrested the guy — they’re trying to find out if he is shoenni or shoe’itte.
The guy bought the shoes at a Payless, and they didn’t even do a background check. . .
You've got to give Bush credit. I mean, the guy moved pretty quickly. ... Too bad he didn't react that way with bin Laden or Katrina, bin Laden or the mortgage crisis, bin Laden or Afghanistan, bin Laden or the Lehman Brothers.
I don't think Bush really has dodged anything like that, well, since the Vietnam War. [From another website.]
Late Night with Conan O'Brien
Yesterday at a press conference in Baghdad, an angry Iraqi threw his shoes at President Bush’s head. When he saw the shoes, President Bush said, “See? I knew you guys had weapons of mass destruction.”
The man who threw his shoes at President Bush is being hailed as a hero in Iraq. In fact, when he dies, he’ll be greeted in heaven by 72 podiatrists.
The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson
Bush has been accused of dodging issues in the past, but who knew he could actually dodge shoes?
He’s 62 years old, but he still has the reflexes of a cat. Mind you, I think his head has been on a swivel ever since Cheney shot his lawyer.
The irony of this shoe-throwing incident is, it’s as close as we’ll ever get to finding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
