Obama Bowed? So What, Cheney Wore Army Boots!

The Fox talking heads complained this morning that President Obama bowed to the Emperor of Japan.


To the Emperor of Japan.

And they have a problem with this?? 

First of all, wingnut dipshits, the Emperor bowed back. That's how it's done in Japan. A bow is a show of mutual respect, not a one-way flow of power. The President showed the Emperor respect due his station, and the Emperor returned the show of respect.

Secondly, does anyone remember this:

Vice President Dick Cheney, representing the United States of America at ceremonies marking the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp.

Notice the parka and galoshes. So, which is more disrespectful to the people of this country, and to our allies? A bow, or showing up at a solemn ceremony dressed like a garbage collector?

Also during the festivities, Liz Cheney, ever the dutiful, deluded daughter, floated the idea of her father, the aforementioned arch-demon Dick Cheney, as the Republican candidate in 2012. That girl is gonna go places! Places with lots of locks and padded rooms, that is.
