Yes. But the real question is, did he give him a toy helicopter or a bitchin’ iPod, too?
He bowed to religious intolerance.
He bowed to misogyny.
He bowed to anti-semitism.
He bowed to homophobia.
In short, he surrendered our country’s ideals, offering up our principles for sacrifice on the altar of Otherness — behaving much as the Brits’ royal class and the continental elites have long behaved, favoring the sumptuous decadence of flowing robes and exotic scimitars and sweet tea respites to the bustling workaday democracy of capitalist Jews and their “shitty little country.”
Would-be royalty sticks together, I guess. And by bowing before a Saudi Prince, our President — in addition to taking a piss on 200+ years of precedent — has shown himself to be as principled as many of us knew him to be. Which is not principled at all.
Of course, on the plus side — and this is for you, Mitt, and you, Charles — I will say this: that sure was one genuinely obsequious-looking bow!
See? I can praise Obama when he done good, too!
