Ed Morrissey flags a fascinating (if perhaps logical) aspect of President Obama's overseas trip:

"They have someone who tastes the dishes," said waiter Gabriel de Carvalho from the "La Fontaine de Mars" restaurant where Obama and his family turned up for dinner on Saturday night.

Is this common practice for a President? Well, Morrissey points out that President Bush did the same thing when visiting Buckingham palace.

Not a bad gig for the taster, since you'd expect the President is getting the finest French cuisine while visiting, no?
