Throw a shoe,Win a drink

ABC News' Teddy Davis reports:Obama Site Linked to 'Bush Shoe Toss' Event
Colin Powell held a press conference in Washington, D.C., Friday, touting the launch of Barack Obama's new Web site, USAService.org, which allows Americans to find -- and to promote -- local service opportunities that are searchable by zip code.President Bush's former secretary of state said he was on the site this morning and vouched for its usefulness.But here's betting that Powell didn't have time to go through all of the events on it.Wanting to see how the Web site works, I typed in my hometown zip code in Chicago to find events within a 10-mile radius.It pointed me to several events, including a blood drive, a graffiti cleanup, and an "Obama Celebration and Bush Shoe Toss."The event, which was listed as a "Day of Service -- January 19," is taking place at the soon-to-open Carnivale Café on the corner of Clark and Belmont."Come celebrate with us," wrote Gilbert Gazan, 46, in the event's description. "Say goodbye to old Georgie ... Throw a shoe at a poster of Bush and win a free drink." A-ha... I'm not feeling this new tone that Obama is supposed to be ushering in.This whole new day in America, new era of bipartisanship, no red states or blue states stuff is garbage...It's all garbage
