Scrappleface ^ | 3-6-2009 | Scott Ott

White House insiders report Mr. Obama has narrowed it down to a CD box set, Queen: The Crown Jewels, or a queen-sized mattress.

To hell with the “Queen”. Who cares? That form of government is obsolete and so is her title. This is a waste of money.

In all fairness, Obama prolly wanted to give Brown something from an American industry . . . ain’t much of that anymore.

Although, if I were Brown, I would have preferred a Harley.

Somebody needs to tell B.O. that when he meets the Queen protocol is to allow the Queen to extend her hand first. Don't be a Pelosi.

The British people care about her and the U.K is best and strongest ally. Plus its good to be polite.

Incidentally, I wonder what Brown gave Obama? Its usual to exchange gifts on these occasions.

I will be anxious to see how he gets his teleprompters to move with him as he approaches the Queen. Are they working on a version with wheels? Maybe he could get glasses with teleprompter side wings.

Still waiting for the new West Wing + Beverley Ghettobillies comedy pilot on NBC.

“Hey, why do a job half assed when you can make a complete ass of yourself?”

What Pres zer-O seems to be intent on doing is dissing our most reliable allies, i.e., Israel and the UK. Both have stood by us through thick and thin. Pres zer-O would rather align himself with the Palestinians and socialist Europe instead. He will soon replace Neville Chamberlain as history's “Great Appeaser”....
