India's Shoegate

Today as an expression of rage and disgust, Delhi based journalist Jarnail Singh hurled his shoe at the Indian Home Minister P. Chidambaram. Jarnail Singh was obviously p***ed off that Jagdish Tytler, a Congress candidate, was exonerated by the CBI for the charges of inciting a riot against Sikhs following Indira Gandhi's assasination.

Here is a Youtube video of the incident.


Quite frankly, the incident was amusing more than anything else. Copying something that has already been done twice before made this whole situation comical.

Chidambaram joins the elite club of George "Dubya" Bush and Chinese Premier Wen Jianbao. Wonder who's next. Any guesses?
