This story is a 'shoe-in' for YouTube
Our favorite YouTuber Hunter Walk reports that 62 of the top 100 most viewed videos on popular video-sharing site YouTube today involve our President and his Sole Mate, the shoe-hurling Iraqi journalist Muntather Zaidi.
Now blogger Robert Scoble points out that late-night funny man David Letterman used the incident to lob Internet shoe vendor Zappos.com another kind of projectile: a free plug.
Now is this a story that has -- ahem -- legs or what?
Yeah, yeah. Go ahead, throw something.
