President Bush walked away from the shoe-throwing incident in Baghdad unscathed, but his spokeswoman received a black eye in the melee, Gawker is reporting.

Dana Perino returned to Washington sporting a shiner she received when a boom mike hit her after security personnel rushed toward the shoe thrower.
