"There are countless horrible things happening all over the world and horrible people prospering, but we must never allow them to disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to sabotage and annoy them whenever possible." -Auberon Waugh
It appears to be a physical tic, possibly related to the lack of an actual spine.
perhaps his ego is so heavy his neck cannot hold up his head
Perhaps What He Did Wasn’t Occidental?
It looks as though he's fallen asleep.
I think he looks like a marionette whose strings have been cut.
Maybe the windup key for his back hasn't deplaned yet.
He said 'that's Chanel'She said 'no its Yves St Laurent'He (bowing very low) said 'I am so sorry'
That man would be funny as hell in a Chinese restaurant...
The Energizer Bunny said "Ah, screw it..."
Obama needs to cut back on the sushi consumption. Seriously Mr. President, just because the Mayor is of Asian ancestry...for goodness sake, she's American! Didn't you get the "Content of a Person's Character" memo?It must be a high for the Mayor though. "Wow! The President bowed to me!" Misred, you're right that massive ego is very heavy. But I think that he has been taking notes from old footage of Mussolini. Of course, we all might be wrong and he just dropped another contact...or something.Deborah Leigh
Maybe Mayor Iorio is wearing shoe mirrors.TW: unner. Well, yes, O!Bama could be looking unner her, ummmmm, you know.....
Thanks for the laughs, guys.Shameless link whoring:http://annoyancesandirritations.blogspot.com/2010/02/political-rooster.html
Pam Iorio isn't Asian, she's Italian (although she does look kind of Asian in that photo).So Bam had even less excuse for the bow. I really do think it's a knee-jerk reaction on his part (Indonesia, Hawaii, pals with tons of Pakistanis during his student years, he spent his whole youth surrounded by Asians).The problem is, Bam isn't Asian, and neither is America. This tic of his just makes him look stupid.
Thanks for setting me straight, RebeccaH. I was told that she was of Asian heritage and married to a guy of Italian background. Either way, you're right, the Bam shouldn't be bowing to anyone. I grew up in Hawaii and no one went around bowing. JeffS seems to have it correct...mirror shoes.
I think he looks like a marionette whose strings have been cut.So these are the guys really in charge of things over there?Thuderbirds are go
I saw that two (3? 4?) days late - not here FWIW - but still couldn't resist posting it... caption time! I'm with Kae... shameless link-whoring.http://jamesboard.wordpress.com/2010/02/02/obama-bows-again-caption-time/Maybe he got hammered on the jet, and was about to pass out.
