Video: Woman in Las Vegas throws shoe at Hillary Clinton
Finally, under fire.

Hillary was speaking, in the Mandalay Bay Hotel, at a conference on scrap recycling, because you do a lot of that kind of thing when you make your living from speaking fees.

A woman, obviously young, and apparently stupid (see the sophomoric victory walk as she’s escorted out), threw an object at Clinton, reported later to be a shoe.

Seems like a waste of a perfectly good shoe, but we report, you decide on that head.  Hillary handled it pretty well, after first wondering if the flying object had been a bat.  She got off a few one-liners about solid-waste recycling and the shoe-thrower’s poor aim.  Just getting off a one-liner about solid-waste recycling seems worthy of some kind of award.

Hillary is no stranger to the increasingly popular footwear projectile.  The still-unidentified woman who threw the shoe today may have been channeling the Egyptian crowds that voted with their shoes against Hillary’s management of U.S. foreign policy in July of 2012.
