What’s the Loop reading Monday morning?

Hillary hecklers — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got a none-too-warm welcome in Egypt, where “several hundred protesters waving shoes and shouting ‘Monica! Monica!’ pelted Clinton’s departing motorcade with fruit and footwear.”

Thanks for the memories — Longtime ambassador Chan Heng Chee has returned home to Singapore after 16 years in Washington. Send-offs included the requisite bash at Tony and Heather Podesta’s place and soaking up her local favorites, including “art museums, coffee at Patisserie Poupon in Georgetown and a final lunch at her favorite neighborhood restaurant, Nam Viet.”

Talent show — Presidential campaign videos or “American Idol” auditions? Mitt Romney has a new Web ad out responding to President Obama’s attack ad on him — Obama’s featured Romney’s shaky vocal performance of “America the Beautiful,” while Romney uses Obama crooning “Let’s Stay Together.”

It isn’t easy — The Green Party’s convention has a circus-like atmosphere.
