Oh give me…
…a break people. Will you stop at nothing? Have we already forgotten the close, close relationship between the Bush family and the House of Saud? Yes, Allahpundit mentions the hand-holding Bush and his Saudi pals did. So why pile on Obama? Oh that’s right. Nothing better to do. No new ideas. The vast majority of the conservative movement has completely lost its mind, its integrity, or both. Yeah. Probably both.
Update: James Joyner sums up my feeling on the matter:
At the end of the day, I just can’t muster the outrage of Michelle Malkin or even Mark Steyn on this one. (I do find amusement, however, at Steyn’s description: “So let me see if I understand American protocol in the age of Obama: The First Lady hugs Queen Elizabeth as if she’s some granny at a seniors’ center photo-op, but the President of this republic prostrates himself before King Abdullah as if he’s a subject of the Saudi pseudo-Crown.”) Mostly, I share Pat Lang’s befuddlement that Americans care so much about monarchs and their little rituals.
