J-tron has a new friend and now he's like all awkward in front of the ladies in his life. Who does he hug first, Miss Cindy or the Bulldog with Lipstick?
When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When trying to act human, do as the humans do.
NYT darling Elisabeth Bumiller (siiigh) explains it further:
Mr. McCain’s closest adviser, Mark Salter, insisted that there had been no behind-the-scenes stage direction — “Nobody said, ‘Cindy first’ ” — and that no one in the campaign had discussed hugging etiquette or protocol between Mr. McCain and Ms. Palin. “They’re going to behave like normal human beings,” he said. “Nobody ever told him, ‘Just shake hands.’ ”
Behaving like normal human beings? Good luck.
