Is Nouri Al-Maliki, the Iraqi Prime Minister, the coolest customer alive? I noticed on a second look at the clip of the Iraqi journalist throwing his shoes at Still President Bush his reaction, or lack thereof:

It made me think of the following incident from last year when Ban Ki Moon visited Baghdad – again watch Al-Maliki closely and listen to the announcer carefully (I know he pops out of picture momentarily):

Yes, you heard it correctly, he blinked!!! Does nothing faze this man at all??!! If being cool under pressure was the only qualification for running a country, Iraq would be in great hands.

And by the way, wouldn’t it be great if this incident led to a spate of similar attacks so that Bush (and Cheney et al) gets pelted with (non-lethal) objects wherever he goes.
