A Farewell Kiss

As promised, today is the virtual shoe throw hosted by Lisa at My Ecdysis, in solidarity with the “Iraqi shoe-thrower” Muntader al-Zaidi, and in a final act of extreme disapproval towards Bush on what is finally his last day in office.

As Lisa said best: in defiance of terror, in defiance of war, and in defiance of violence (and yes, in the spirit of a bit of fun), we at Feministe virtually throw our shoes at outgoing president George W. Bush:


Cara kicks things off right with some heavy-duty boots:

Jill wants her throw to be aerodynamic, cute, and very feminist:

Holly makes sure that Bush sees her shoes coming, even in the dead of night:

Lauren swears that these would hurt more than they look:

Jack says these boots are made for throwing. They sure look like it:

Rachel wants Bush to at least be comfortable while getting whacked upside the head:

And Julia is going to have to come up with alternate get-away plans once she throws away the running shoes:

View more shoes virtually launched at our thankfully very, very soon-to-be ex-President of the United States at My Ecdysis.  And throw your shoes by taking a photograph and posting it on your own blog with a link back to Lisa.

    Y’all make my pink moccasins look wimpy. I swear they hurt if you put a little spin on ’em.

    I don’t have a blog but as a long time reader/lurker I hope you all don’t mind if I borrow yours because I’m not only throwing shoes, I’m flinging some mud while I’m at it.

    I posted my boots on my facebook account, because it’s the only blog-like thing that I have. The above boots look like mine.

    I guess that whole 52 to 48 thing is over. Nice while it lasted I suppose.

    Stepping out of the virtual for a moment, anyone know where I can find the address of Bush’s residence in Texas? Cause I’ve got 2 or 3 pairs of real nasty old sneakers sitting around.

    A little late to the shoe-throwing bonanza, but here we go.

    I would have thrown some Uggs at Bush’s head.

    Make sure you toss some shoes at the many Democrats, including Obama, who voted for Bush’s policies. Hold Them Accountable Too: Many Democrats Supported Policies of the “Worst President” (Part I)
