From the wiki – A protocol is a rule which guides how an activity should be performed, especially in the field of diplomacy. In the diplomatic and government fields of endeavor protocols are often unwritten guidelines. Protocols specify the proper and generally-accepted behavior in matters of state and diplomacy, such as showing appropriate respect to a head of state, ranking diplomats in chronological order of their accreditation at court, and so on.

I have a feeling that no Chief of Staff for any President before now has ever felt the least bit of inclination to publicly embarrass himself…let alone to go ahead and do it.  But, then again, I doubt that any prior Chief of Staff has been so reviled as is MC Rove.

Maybe the MC Rove “bit” was a PR move.  Maybe rapping is now a “generally accepted behavior” in diplomatic circles…

Is it just me or does Rove look like he spent too much time in a nuclear reactor?  Or better yet, like Paul McCrane did in Robocop after swimming in the toxic waste?  Judge for yourself…
