The “Bow” is Back!
You know, the one which the White House denied was a bow, in one of the earlier displays of the White House thinking we are stupid:
“It wasn’t a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he’s taller than King Abdullah,” said an Obama aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
You know, the one which gave rise to the claim by a washed-up photo analyst blogger that Bush bowed too?
Our thoughts: Obama’s original “bow” to the Saudi tribal chieftain was actually a stoop… to kiss the ring on his right hand – far more degrading than a mere bow. Even Sarkozy had to laugh. The faux bowing nonsense that followed appears to be theatrical cover, the way a child reenacts a prat-fall to make the original blunder appear “deliberate.”
[If the Won is so hungry to stoop and kiss, hey! – He can bend ov- uh, right. Never mind. – Ed.]
