Shoes for industry! Shoes for the dead!

We now have the second iconic moment of the Bush presidency. This is how he’ll be remembered, if only because shoes seem to be so psychologically powerful: Khrushchev is remembered in this country for pounding his shoe on the UN’s lectern, and Adlai Stevenson is remembered for the hole in his shoe.

(NOTES: The first iconic moment was Bush speaking under the “Mission Accomplished” banner. And this post’s title is a Firesign Theater quote.)

  1. I thought the Firesign theatre line was “Shoes for industry! Shoes for defense!”

  2. No, I believe my brother is correct in the quotation, at least that is what I always heard.

    So, Bush is for Industry and politically he is already powerless, so the quotation fits (even if the shoes don’t).

  3. It’s trending my way: http://www.faqs.org/faqs/firesign-theatre/lexicon/part4/

    Either way, the shoe fits pretty well.

  4. the quotation fits (even if the shoes don’t).

    Well, if the foo shits, wear it!*
