No, the headline isn’t hyperbole. As the picture shows it’s far too real. It is also completely ignored by most mass media. One source referred to it as “a DEEP, subservient bow“. Look at the picture and you can see that is an apt description.
My biggest question isn’t why did he do it, but why isn’t any large media outlet reporting on it? Oh sure there are a few small bloggers llike myself who are inscensed enough to say something, but not enough people see my blog.
