BAGHDAD (Dec. 14) - On an Iraq trip shrouded in secrecy and marred by dissent, President George W. Bush on Sunday hailed progress in the war that defines his presidency and got a size-10 reminder of his unpopularity when a man hurled two shoes at him during a news conference.

Bush joked himself about it later by saying it was a size 10, someone could have gotten hurt from this but watch the video, the man was kind of upset he shouted; "This is a farewell kiss, you dog!"

    I heard about this on NPR this morning. Throwing or hitting
