They All Look the Same to Me, Too

A student of Raza Academy, a Muslim rights and educational organization, touches a shoe to the head of a stuffed dog wearing a mask resembling the outgoing U.S. President George W. Bush during a demonstration in Mumbai to mark the end of Bush's presidency January 20, 2009. REUTERS/Arko Datta (INDIA)

I was afraid the Middle Eastern Shoe Art Renaissance was totally succumbing to dullness and repetition, but this late entry is quite sophisticated and bizarre, obviously inspired by Mike Kelley's innovative work with plush toys.

So, you know, A for effort and everything, but somebody's gotta tell that kid that he's got the wrong George Bush! What's H.W. ever done to him? Tsk.

What's better than throwing shoes at a W. doll? Throwing shoes at a DOG/W. doll! What do Muslims hate more; Dogs or W? I know, it's a hard choice.
