If It Looks Like a Duck...

...And quacks like a duck...

Does that look like bow to anyone? The White House is running interference, claiming because Obama is such a giant of a man, he had to bend down to shake the Saudi king's hand.

Why is anyone surprised at this? 

"...Al Qaeda is still a threat. We cannot pretend somehow that because Barack Hussein Obama got elected as president, suddenly everything is going to be OK." 

Well said, Mr. President. Subjects bow. Clearly, very little is "OK".

I wish more people would just own up to their mistakes. I'm sure that even if he really wanted to bow to the Saudi king, even the slightest glimmer of good judgment would have precluded the bow. "Hmmm, that might look bad if I bow. Probably shouldn't." If Obama would just come out and say that he goofed - that he got caught up in the moment or that he was daydreaming - I could accept that. He's a rookie. That was a rookie mistake. But that doesn't mean we can't poke fun, does it?

Note: Not even Obama's action figure is capable of performing a bow, so he couldn't possibly have really done it. I apologize for the rudimentary Photoshop job.
