As reported in the Daily Mail:
This is the astonishing moment a book was apparently hurled at the head of President Barack Obama during a campaign rally in Philadelphia.
The flying missile narrowly missed hitting the President yesterday.
It is not clear what the book was, where it came from in the crowd, or why it was thrown at Mr Obama – who did not appear to notice the danger.
The NeoSexist.com can now announce that the book has indeed been identified as seen by the insert in the picture below:
Mr. Obama appeared unaware of the book as it hurled past his head.
A White House spokesman was quoted as saying, “I wouldn’t read too much into this. Presidents get things thrown at them all the time. The title and subject matter of the book don’t reflect anything about public sentiment at this point in time. Just a strange coincidence much like the Presidential Seal falling off the podium. Then again, maybe we could have seen this coming.”

Mr. Obama had a close encounter with another kind of “missile” as Doug Powers @ MM points out. Thankfully the offending member was appropriately covered in the photo.
