Comic: Nobel besties

The peace laureates

During a visit to Southeast Asia, President Obama became the first American president to visit Myanmar, and took the opportunity to meet longtime opposition politician Aung San Suu Kyi.

Obama appeared not to have read his State Department briefing about getting touchy-feely with Asian leaders. They don't love it, and that could be easily seen in the photographs of Aung San Suu Kyi leaning away from the president's embrace (and smooches!).

In fairness, the president may easily have skipped over that part of the protocol section before his previous meetings with Asian leaders. With the exception of Thailand's prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra, there are not a lot of kissable Asian leaders (Yoshihiko Noda, I'm talking about you).

Roberto De Vido writes cartoons and comics about politics, sports (and life) from a small fishing and farming village an hour southwest of Tokyo.
