Cozying up to the queen
'HOW ironic. In 1776, the United States broke away from England to form a new kind of democracy, free from the whims of royalty. In 2003, the U.S. president spurns an appearance before Britain’s democratically chosen representatives to hide behind the skirts of the queen.' - - from an editorial in the Charleston Gazette (thanks to moonwatcher for the link).
