Barack Obama is the most embarrassing president ever

-Headline of the day-
"Our Most Embarrassing President?"

Hahaha! Barack Obama bowed to the Emperor of Japan... What a dope! Bet he took his shoes off, too. This was a terrible breach of protocol that has the whole world talking... OK, maybe not, but all America is talking... OK, so it's just FOX News. But FOX is real, man, and if they think this is the worst thing ever, then this is the worst thing ever. Everyone with a brain knows that when an American president meets a foreign monarch, he's supposed to beat him nearly to death and steal his wife. That's in the Constitution. Look it up.

Anyway, FOX News' "FOX Nation" website asks -- in a fair and balanced way -- whether our current president is history's biggest embarrassment. "He established a new precedent for how American presidents should pay obeisance to kings, emperors, monarchs, sovereigns and assorted other authentic man-made masters of the universe," FOX reports. "He stopped just this side of the full grovel to the emperor of Japan, risking a painful genuflection if his forehead had hit the floor with a nasty bump, which it almost did."

God, what an idiot. Is he the most embarrassing ever? Let's take a look back:

There was the time Obama made out with a Saudi prince...

And the time he tried to molest the German Chancellor...

Or the time he got hammered and thought he could dance...

Or the other time he got hammered and spanked an Olympic athlete in Beijing...

Or the other time he got hammered and picked a fight with a pretzel (a fight he lost, by the way)...

Or the time he became the first person to ever wipe out on a supposedly "foolproof" Segway scooter...

Wait, what? Obama's the black fella?

Never mind. (FOX Nation)

-A real tough interview-
Rush Limbaugh interviewed Sarah Palin. It's a big long boring interview, but if you really need to know what it was all about, allow me to present the Reader's Digest condensed version:

LIMBAUGH: Ubububub... Why are you so awesome?... Ububub...

That's it in a nutshell. Read the whole thing if you want, but I think you'll find my abridged version was amazingly accurate. (RushLimbaugh.com)

-Bonus HotD-
"Hoffman un-unconcedes the NY-23 special election."

There are still uncounted absentee ballots in New York's 23rd congressional district race and, at the behest of his mentor, Conservative Party candidate, teabagger king, and Glenn Beck protege Doug Hoffman decided to "unconcede" the race. See, y'gotta be in it to win it.

Anyhoo, it turns out that maybe Glenn Beck's not the best political adviser in the world and now Hoffman as un-unconceded -- or took back his taking back of his concession to Democrat Bill Owen.

That's what you like to see in a political candidate, decisiveness. (Think Progress)
