An Iraqi journalist showed his disapproval for President Bush during a Baghdad press conference by tossing his shoes at the president.

Bush ducked both shoes and was not hurt. The president’s press secretary Dana Perino did get a small black eye after she was hit with a microphone in the ensuing chaos.

The Associated Press has more details here.
