So Obama bows as he greets the Japanese emperor, and we now have "Bow-gate." If you pay any attention to the morons who surround Chris Wallace on Sundays: Dick Cheney never bowed... Sarah Palin would not bow...
That's simply because the one is rude, crude, uncouth and self-important, and the second adds stupid to that personal resume.
Obama was being polite. Look it up. I think it's still listed in dictionaries. I don't think Dubya completely killed the concept. Try as he did.
There's no "there" there. Here. Wherever.
