"Oh Noes! George W. Bush Is Teh Secret Vietnamese!"

hilzoy at Obsidian Wings pretty much nails the response to the right-wing blogosphere's meltdown regarding a picture of Obama (rumored to be) circulated by Hillary Clinton's campaign. It even made a headline at Drudge, though I don't know how many flashing sirens it may or may not have earned since I don't read Drudge.

People on diplomatic missions are often given traditional garb as a sign of hospitality. It would be rather rude to not wear this clothing, as even our President seems to realize. However, as usual, I wouldn't expect a mea culpa anytime soon from the nutty fringe over this.
