Coleman pulls a Bush, successfully dodges moving objects


Yesterday we reported on the supposed egg-chucker who attacked Norm Coleman and his house. Well the story just got some new legs.

When interviewed about the egg attack, Coleman described his reaction as a "George Bush move". Bush gets shoes hurled at him, Coleman gets eggs. Not sure what's better.

More from the Pioneer Press:

Coleman told police he heard thumping on his Crocus Hill door about 9:20 p.m. Tuesday -- the day after a three-judge panel ruled Al Franken had won last year's Senate race -- and went outside to look, police spokesman Peter Panos said Thursday.

"He (the man) said something, some little obscenity, and then he threw another one," Coleman said Wednesday. "I kind of ducked. A George Bush move. ... I ran after him but I didn't get him." Coleman was referring to the former president dodging shoes thrown by an Iraqi journalist in December.

The egg thrower, who was on a bicycle, looked to be in his late teens or early 20s and didn't say much, "other than foul things," Coleman said. The culprit uttered something to the effect of, "I (expletive) can't stand what you represent," Coleman said.
