Sour Grapes

Saddam Hussein's hometown folks can't bring back their hero, but they can do the next best thing: erect a sculpture of a giant shoe to commemorate Ba'athist stooge and "journalist" Muntadar al-Zeidi.

Nice goin', citizens - and glad to see you're all getting the hang of this freedom of speech thing (which is better than being hanged for it).

Okay. That shoe looks like a part of a pair you'd buy in Goodwill, or maybe find hanging by the shoelaces over a power line.

It's even got weeds growing out of it. The Old Lady Who Lived There would never approve.
