Missed by that . . . much! or . . . . if the shoe fits . . .

Maxwell Smart obviously has an influence on terrorism and political assassins more than four decades later . . .

No, I am not making this up. He missed by that . . . much!!

Interestingly enough, more than five years go, Iraqis were beating on a toppled statue of Saddam Hussein with shoes. Dubya must be mildly embarassed.

And in a late breaking development to the Iraqi-U.S. securityagreement signed after the press conference, Iraqi forces are banned from carrying the following weaponry: clogs, hard-soled dress shoes, stilettoes, platforms, pumps, sabots, flip flops with soles more than 7/16″ thick, steel-toed boots, tap shoes, Doc Martens and anything worn by Sarah Palin.


  1. Where’s the justice? Who was responsible for giving that twat a pair of shoes and Lee Harvey a rifle?

  7. I note that Iraqi security has reportedly destroyed the shoes in the course of searching them for explosives.

    Couldn’t The Conspiracy find an assassin who remembers to pull the pins before throwing them?

  12. “A Turkish shoe firm says it has had to take on 100 extra staff to cope with a surge in orders after an Iraqi threw shoes at US President Bush.

    Istanbul-based Baydan Shoes claims it made the shoes and says it now has tens of thousands of orders from around the world – including from the US and Iraq.”
