Can US bow low enough?

I am, of course, *loving* how US conservatives are going crazy over Obama’s bowing to the Japanese Emperor. How dare he show respect to the titular leader of a foreign country?! Never mind how W walked hand-in-hand with the Saudi Arabian royal petro dealers or cozied up perched on their arm rests.

Obama playing nice in Japan and currying favor in Chinese signals a shift from the aggressive unilateralism into a new era where the US must please and satisfy the purchasers of our ballooning Treasury debt. The sexual undertones add to the political realignment of new roles and possibilities.

As others have noted, Obama was poorly prepared for his meeting with Japanese leaders. You do not bow while hand-shaking. It is either/or, or at the least bow-then-shake.

Shake weights for men

Is this for real? Apparently it was introduced on the Ellen show and then Jon Stewart’s Daily Show.

Here’s a hilarious online description: Shake Weight: The masturbating-style workout device for men

Three men, standing around–wielding, long, hard vibrating devices. It’s like any normal day in the locker room of a David Barton Gym. (You NYC folks know what I mean *WINK*)
