Lame Ducker

So here's a question: you've most likely seen the video of the recent shoe-throwing incident. It happened in a room filled with cameras, still and video.

Which covered it better? Was there a still that will be the iconic moment from the incident, or is a still from the video enough? Does the video coverage beat the still images? Was no one able to react quickly enough to get a great photograph?

Above: accidental question mark, found in The Bronx.

Great question. It happened so fast that it appeared to have taken everyone by surprise, both photographers and secret service. As such, I thought the video was much better than any of the stills I've seen. The video also highlighted Bush's ninja like reflexes!
