About That Bow

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 0:02

I mentioned to my mom on the phone tonight that the fact Dear Leader bowed in Japan is no big deal. I stand by that. Bowing is not a breach of protocol. Presidents have been bowing overseas for over two hundred years.

But… It seems that The One continues to get cracking advice from those great protocol advisers He hired. Or He is just that dumb on his own. It’s so hard to tell anymore.

“Kyodo News is running his appropriate and reciprocated nod and shake with the Empress, certainly to show the president as dignified, and not in the form of a first year English teacher trying to impress with Karate Kid-level knowledge of Japanese customs.

I ask you: Would anybody even care if He bowed if He were a president who showed signs of liking the American flag?

Update:

Ramirez seems to wonder the same thing.
