    Good lord

    JAKARTA, Indonesia — Once the wait for President Barack Obama's return was over, Indonesian anticipation turned to another question: Would a conservative Muslim government minister shake the first lady's hand?

    He says he did, but not by choice. Footage on YouTube shows otherwise, sparking a debate that has lit up Facebook, Twitter and the rest of the blogosphere.

    "I tried to prevent (being touched) with my hands but Mrs. Michelle held her hands too far toward me (so) we touched," Information Minister Tifatul Sembiring told tens of thousands of followers on Twitter. :ahole-1:

    Does this mean he has to walk around telling everyone he is "Unclean"?

    How screwed up is a person/faith that they can't shake hands?

    I don't like the obamas, But is a childish insult to the First family and Americans everywhere.

    And there are some that don't believe Islam is lead by a bunch of Neanderthals.

    I wouldn't say neanderthals. I'd go with sexist goons.

    I simply can't fathom why any woman, let alone American woman, would be ok with this whacked out faith.

    I'd shake her hand. I'd give her a big old titty hug too.

    That's lame.

    She's still the First Lady. We should wait until her next gaff to slap her around. It's been awhile, so she's do.
