Unacceptable Art in Iraq

The above statue, a tribute the Iraqi journalist and shoe-thrower Muntazer al-Zaidi, was removed from the site of an orphanage by Iraqi police. The AP story is here.

Al-Zaidi is currently in jail, awaiting trial -- evidently, he was able to vote in the Jan. 28 elections.

  1. if the Iraqis use their democracy similarly to Americans, then they will re-construct the shoe sculpture after U.S. forces leave (since the original is destroyed now) and make the new one twice as big
