Just an audience interruption?

Muntazer al-Zaidi, the shoe-thrower, is a hero in the Arab world. A Saudi businessman has offered $10 million for one of the shoes. The talk about shoes just doesn't cease. Yet, the White House, on the other hand, merely refers to this pivotal moment in Arab history as "audience interruption"! See it in the White House transcript of the press conference. It is probably the worst job you could have - draft press releases for Bush's administration. By the way, in the melee that ensued, Dana Perino, the White House press secretary, got a jab in her eye from a mike.
