Coleman dodges egg with 'Bush move'

Republican Norm Coleman used a quick George Bush-esque move to dodge an egg thrown at him outside his Minnesota home.
Coleman told police that he heard a thumping on his door Tuesday night and walked outside to investigate. Upon seeing Coleman, a man yelled “I [expletive] can't stand what you represent” and threw an egg at him.
“He said something, some little obscenity, and then he threw another one,” Coleman told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “I kind of ducked. A George Bush move.”
“I ran after him, but I didn't get him.”
Coleman remains locked in a legal fight with Democrat Al Franken for Minnesota’s vacant Senate seat. A three-judge panel declared Franken the winner earlier this week, but Coleman has vowed to appeal.
What did Senator Coleman do to deserve being attacked by a person throwing eggs?
Did he cheat on his wife?
Does he seem to be engaged in the politics of favoritism?
No, it's simply that he's a Republican.
And our culture allows Republicans to be attacked.
