Keep Swooning, Numbskulls

This is just too choice to pass up. Though I refuse to talk about political positions, I will continue to bust on the Obamabots every chance I get. You thought you were getting the suave, polished, man of the world? The totally hip, happenin' hepcat who would so impress world leaders that they would convulse and slobber over him like you do? Guess again dumb-ass.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown just finished paying a visit to the Anointed One. As is customary, the two leaders exchanged gifts. It's a meaningful gesture that underscores the long-held relationship between the two countries.

PM Brown came bearing some rather impressive, well-thought-out and symbolic gifts:

The Prime Minister gave Mr Obama an ornamental pen holder made from the timbers of the Victorian anti-slave ship HMS Gannet.

The unique present delighted Mr Obama because oak from the Gannet's sister ship, HMS Resolute, was carved to make a desk that has sat in the Oval Office in the White House since 1880.

Mr Brown also handed over a framed commission for HMS Resolute and a first edition of the seven-volume biography of Churchill by Sir Martin Gilbert.
Wow. The whole anti-slave sister-ship piece of history...very well done, Mr. Prime Minister. And what did you receive in return from the long-awaited Messiah of Diplomacy?
A set of DVDs. Barack Obama, the leader of the world's richest country, gave the Prime Minister a box set of 25 classic American films - a gift about as exciting as a pair of socks.
Thanks for the Wal-Mart special there, Slick Rick. Not to mention that the Prime Minister reportedly doesn't even particularly care for movies. All you choads who are rubbing your backs raw with self-congratulation because you think you elected the most refined, enlightened leader in the history of world history can take a tea bag on the chin. Make that a Chuck Norris potato sack. And no spitting either.

I have a friend at work who is very cool. While she's not a mindless swooner, she "likes his style". Well, there's some style for you. Style like Cousin Eddie's white patent leather shoes. Dude just pulled the diplomatic equivalent of swinging by the Stinker Station on his way home on Christmas Eve to pick up a dashing set of Yosemite Sam "Back Off!" mud flaps for the wife.

And now for the best part [drum roll]...the Obamatons will continue to be all verklempt over a man who is showing himself to be more of a rube than Dan Quayle in a Doonesbury panel.
