Trends of politics?

Reactions: 
Is it the latest fashion to throw things (shoes are most preferred) at politicians?
First, it was Bush, past US President (then present):



And now it is Chidambaram(Home Minister, India):



Tch! Tch!

Madhan, too bad that it was done by a student, that too from Engineering. I can understand his frustration but what is the point of doing this action other than get fifteen minutes of fame? As for the PM, people already in the elite list welcome him with arms open wide :D

Bhargavi, Oh oh! The list is definitely becoming bigger. Guess this elite list will be elite no more if the list grows any longer. Welcome aboard!
