I, for one, welcome our new Tampa Municipal Overlords.
Among the many angina attacks suffered by the Right-Wing-osphere since the election of that guy has been that guy's tendency to bow upon greeting people.
First, there was the bow to Saudi King Abdullah, a "shocking display of fealty to a foreign potentate." Next, was the "ignorant and treasonous" bow to Japan's Emperor Akihito, which was just more evidence that "our exceptional status is a sign of arrogance to him. Obama believes that no nation should claim to be better than another - all nations should practice global equity."
So when last week, the President bowed to the mayor of Tampa (see video), right wing bloggers looked deep within their souls and burst forth with reflection and reconciliation.
"You know," they all wrote in unitary cross-posting, "maybe we misjudged BHO. Maybe he doesn't hate America after all. He hasn't cut the military budgets or made any real moves to kill the empire. Maybe all this bowing isn't evidence of subservience to the New World Order, but rather evidence that he likes to greet people politely. After all, what else could a bow to the Mayor of Tampa mean?"
Actually, they just called it "weird."
