The Heritage Foundation ran a contest to see if anyone could come up with better gifts for the Queen than the iPod the Obamas gave her. They divided it into two parts: thoughtful gifts and humorous ones. Some of the thoughtful gifts were truly excellent — Obama’s protocol people should take notes. But one of the facetious gifts was my favorite:
Ed Morrissey explodes the meme that the left is trying to make reality that President Obama was just trying to pick something up off the floor when he bowed before Saudi King Abdullah. He notes that, throughout the bow, Obama’s right hand is engaged in a handshake and his left hand remains in view.
