OMG Chai

So, the president returned a salute today with a cup of chai in his hand. (It is, of course, proof positive that Obama hates the troops.) And let's not get sucked into whether the president should even be saluting - it's a modern custom started by the theatrical Reagan, so OF COURSE HE SHOULD!!!!!!11!

Ahem.

Instead, let's dwell on the outrage provoked in Republicans and Foxicans by this:

Bush salutes with his dog in his arm

Oh, there wasn't any? Moving on...

You will know the answer to this: do ordinary serving soldiers in the US salute when they are in civilian clothes? I'm pretty certain that ain't allowed over here in Blighty. In fact I don't think they are allowed to salute when not wearing headgear (the salute being the remnant of removing the hat, I think).

No. They don't. And until Reagan, presidents didn't salute anybody either.
