Memorializing the Bush 'Legacy'

Muntadhar al-Zaidi, an Iraqi broadcast journalist for Cairo-based, Iraqi-owned Al-Baghdadia TV. Al-Zaidi's often reported on plight of widows, orphans, and children in the Iraq War. On November 16, 2007, al-Zaidi was kidnapped by unknown assailants in Baghdad. He has also been arrested twice by the United States armed forces.

On November 16, 2008, U.S. president George W Bush was interviewed by his own sister, who to describe what he thought his legacy would be. He said that he would be remembered as the 'liberator of the Iraqi people.'

On December 14, 2008, al-Zaidi threw his shoes at the would-be liberator, George W. Bush, during a Baghdad press conference, a sign of extreme disrespect in Arab culture.

Now you can immortalize this moment in glass:
