On Thursday, Hillary Clinton gave a speech before a meeting of the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada. Just after taking the stage, an as-yet unnamed woman rose from the crowd and threw something at her. Thankfully, Clinton was unharmed, ducking and joking, "Was that a bat?...Is that somebody throwing something at me? Is that part of Cirque de Soleil? My goodness, I didn't know that solid waste management was so controversial. Thank goodness she didn't play softball like I did."
Here is a video, courtesy of ABC:
The would-be assailant was taken into custody and is said to have later revealed that the item in question was a shoe, naturally.
Clinton and Bush: Just more of the same.
(Don't throw shoes at people.)
