As Mitsuru had blogged earlier this week, Obama critics (aka Right-wing nuts) have complained about President Barack Obama’s bow-at-the-waist to Emperor Akihito. Those nuts ignored the fact that Nixon bowed to Emperor Hirohito (who “ruled” Japan when Japan attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor) and Eisenhower bowed France’s Charles De Gaulle.
Last week, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert did a hilarious job mocking the ridiculousness of what some have termed this incident as “Bow-Gate.” Enjoy! Is there nothing more hilarious than hypocrisy?
