Who Throws a Shoe? Honestly!

Austin Powers said it first, and I feel the same way… a shoe? Who throws a shoe? Well, apparently not only does that little hitman in Austin Powers, but also Portland resident Bruce C. Charles. But as opposed to a comical villain assigned to kill Austin Powers on his honeymoon, Bruce got riled up listening to Howard Dean and Richard Perle debate foreign policy.

It seems odd that a man would throw a shoe. Was Bruce really that angry with what Perle said? He barely had a chance to speak before the man “flipped out”. If this was a planned protest, in was ineffective and embarrassing. If it was just his first reaction to hearing Perle speak then he’s acting crazy. The question is, why does a 52 year old man charge the stage screaming “Liar! Liar!” and throwing a show during a debate?

    It boggles my mind that nobody commenting on this remebers all the shoe throwing when Sadam Husssein’s statue came down…planned or not the symbolism seems to jump right out at me.
