    BAGHDAD — The jailed journalist who threw his shoes at U.S. President George W. Bush has asked for a pardon, a spokesman for Iraq's prime minister said Thursday.

    In a letter delivered to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, the journalist described his behavior as "an ugly act" and asked to be pardoned, spokesman Yassin Majid told The Associated Press.

    Majid confirmed to Fox News that Muntadhar al-Zeidi has asked the Iraqi president for a pardon, and expressed "regret and sorrow" for his behavior

    Did they also mention that before he asked for forgiveness he begged:

    Don't Tase me, Bro

    Funny how he'd never have dreamed of doing that before the ugly imperialistic Americans gave hime some freedom. Saddam would have had his head on a stick before the sun set if he'd have tried that under his watch.

    He has to feel like a fool. He was that close, got two tosses and the ole Evil American was too fast, both times. lol .......... Kind of like the nerd at the county fair who could never dunk the jock who teases him daily, into the water.

    I'd like to see Bush take up his cause. After all, he did make the comment that the man was living in a democracy and could engage in this type of behavior.

    he shouldn't have yelled God is Great or something about a dog before he lept up and threw the shoes at Bush. He should've just thrown them when Bush wasn't looking. If Bush's nose would've been broken, the Arab world would've LOVED it.

    They should let him out. As bad as his throwing arm is, the Raiders might want to look at him for QB.
