Give credit where it's due, liberals. With right-wing kool-aid drinkers in a tizzy over Barack Obama's formal bow to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, I congratulate right-wing website Little Green Footballs for having the courage to state to its audience -- who no doubt are quite unhappy to read and see it -- that George W. Bush bowed to King Abdullah, too. It is, after all, simply a protocol and a gesture of polite greeting and it is far too easy to read far too much into it. There is no doubt, by anyone, that the President of the United States is more powerful than the king of any country. Props to LGF for intellectual honesty.
