BOW, BOW, BOW YOUR HEAD
Posted by Andrew Roman on February 1, 2010
But isn’t this getting a little ridiculous already? Isn’t this propensity to bow when meeting someone gone a little overboard already? Hasn’t this entire new-age, metrosexual, compassionate, in-touch-with-his-feminie-side, bend-over-and-look-like-a-weakling thing run its course?
What is with all the bowing?
I honestly don’t get it.
Is it hard-wired in him? Did he get into the habit by bowing to his nightstand picture of Karl Marx every time he got up to pee when he was in college? Did he wake up in a daze and think he was overseas meeting some head of state? What on earth is going on?
First, the Saudi king gets a close-up of President Obama’s scalp. Then, it’s the emperor of Japan who gets a peak. But now, the mayor of Tampa, Florida?
I mean, come on … what is this already?
Why in hell would the mayor of Tampa, Florida – second-term Democrat, Pam Iorio – require a bow from the President of the United States?
My Lord … If the mayor of Tampa gets a full-fledged bow, I wonder what Michelle Obama gets when they wake up in the morning. A toe-licking? Armpit smooches? An ear-wax tongue cleansing?
Huge H/T to Weasel Zippers.
