Cheney and the Bow

Obama's presumed bow to the Japanese emperor, and I say presumed because Gibbs hasn't weighed on whether he might have lost a contact lens or something, made the silly news of this slow news weekend.



Here's another compilation showing past protocol. My take is that our first Pacific president is not an idiot--he's doing this purposely to make a statement about how he perceives American exceptionalism. In other words, it's an apology bow.

All this led to some fun by the Fox panel regards Dick Cheney's non bow. But are they sure she wasn't referring to herself?

Liz Cheney would make a great politician, like Father, like daughter.

As to the bow,I think you are right. He did not bow to the Queen of England though...
