The Obama administration is still denying that the president bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, but Fox News has the best “dancing around the word ‘bow’” analysis so far:
A video of the greeting shows Obama significantly stooping before the 84-year-old monarch.
If you’re in your 40′s and appear to be “significantly stooping” before an 84-year-old, you’re either bowing or applying for the last remaining position in a year-long pillow-fight at the Playboy Mansion.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said that the president didn’t bow, won’t do it again, and that the economy is so lousy, who cares either way? Hard to argue with him there. Gibbs then pointed to the sky and said, “Look, a falling star!” and ran from the room.
I’d suggest that the White House call it “Royalty-onset osteoporosis” from now on, just to avoid any confusion. “Had to tie my shoe” also works in a pinch, as would branding Obama-style genuflection as “The Hunch of Hope,” possibly kicking off a new dance craze.
Incidentally, Oliver North agrees with the White House position. North insists that Obama didn’t bow — he curtsied.blog comments powered by Disqus
