He is not a legend. His throwing of shoes at Bush was a sign of utter disrespect in the midst of negotiations. This act just promoted more violence and opposition to American actions in Iraq. Plus, politicians in democratic societyies like the US are expected to be respected by the public. If they're doing a bad job they can be voted out of office.

And upon seeing the commotion the Messiah did pause and say, "let he who has not started an illegal war, based on lies to privatise another nation's nationalised oil industry and generally screwed the world over... cast the first shoe".

And lo... the assembled crowd being unwashed hippies and pinko-liberals, and lacking such political authority, share deals or indeed jobs, did henceforth cast many a shoe.

Some shoes fell short, some shoes overshot, but such was the deluge of shoes that the false President was soon dead.

And the people did rejoice and verily they feasted upon quail, lark, ocelot, ham, spam, pork, beef, monkey, lamb, monkey spider, squid, otter, weasel, llama, octopus, cat, dog, mouse, alpaca, vulture, eagle, horse, shoe leather, budgie, parrot, tiger, lion, wolf, weasel, snail, gerbil, hamster, rat, tuna, salmon, cod, haddock, hake, trout, mackeral and honey.

The shoe thrower is still epic though.

The effort is to be respected but does not make him legendary.
If the shoe had collided with Bush's head that would have been impressive... not legendary.
If the shoe had somehow struck and killed him then he would have passed into legend.

Regarding TysonMarshall's views, a person can be religious and communist. There's a few of them around although it's not nearly as common. Just sayin'.
