BOW-WOW ... WOW!

What's all this foaming buzz in wingnut freeperville about the President's bowing to the Japanese Emperor? Did he show too much respect? Project U.S. submissiveness? Or was it just plain courtesy to a kindly little monarch, and ... umm, protocol?

OK, wingnuts, let's take a stroll down GOP presidential history memory lane ...

NIXON: "YOUR MAJESTY, ABOUT PEARL HARBOR, WE HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO NUKE YOU FELLAS."

HIROHITO: "AH, SO ..."



EISENHOWER: "CHARLES, MONSIEUR L'ETAT, I BOW BEFORE YOU WITH HAT IN HAND."

DE GAULLE: "AH, MON GENERAL, L'ETAT C'EST MOI INDEED. FRANCE WELCOMES YOU."

Hypocrisy has a short memory.

It's a curse. We only watch it to keep tabs on the wingnut enemy within ...
