Shoe throwing strikes its defiant pose again

Conflicting reports out of Iran, where in the city of Urmia it appears someone threw a shoe at Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Again, these reports are conflicting, as anti-regime bloggers are reporting the incident as fact while writers sympathetic to the Iranian president dismiss it as a rumor spread by "monarchists" and "anti-revolutionaries" spreading dissent.

Also, it should be noted both sides acknowledge it is possible the shoe thrower mistakenly thought Ahmadinejad was Real Madrid manager Juande Ramos leaving for a Mideast getaway after Tuesday's match at Anfield.
