Former Pentagon adviser assuaulted with shoe by non-Republican

With the class and sophistication of a 6 year-old, a non-Republican assaults a former Pentagon adviser with what has been described as a "shockingly small" weapon. The link to the video is here.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Howard Dean, the newly minted leader of the Democratic Party, and former Pentagon adviser Richard Perle made clear their opposing views on the war in Iraq during a debate marred by a protester who tossed a shoe at Perle.

Perle had just started his comments Thursday when a protester threw a shoe at him before being dragged away, screaming, "Liar! Liar!"

Perle, who was Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld's top policy adviser, was a key architect of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, and Dean is among the war's most prominent opponents.
Liberal even-temperment is the first time the two have appeared in the same sentence.
