.... And fuck you 2: the Bitchslapping

Conservatards: "Uppity, trashy black woman touches the Queen of England!!! Major gaffosaurus!!!!11!"

Her Majesty the Queen, to Michelle Obama: "Now we've met, will you please keep in touch?"

Yes, yet another manufactured "outrage" by the right turns out to be just that: a total fucking non-issue, that, in fact, made the Obamas look even better.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman who asked not to be identified because of palace policy said he could not remember the last time the queen had displayed such public affection with a first lady or dignitary.

"It was a mutual and spontaneous display of affection," he said.

The Times of London:
A breach of protocol? Hardly. Buckingham Palace was very relaxed today about the incident, and attitudes there have changed significantly since the days of Mr Keating and his lese-majesty, or the time George W Bush tongue-kissed her, grabbed her ass and called her 'Shorty.' And no, they don’t issue instructions to people about not touching the Queen.

And this is just beautiful.

Heh. The wingnuts just can't stand that the Obamas are generating so much excitement in Europe. Next: Obama bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia!!!!!eleventybillion!!!!1!

Amateur. Doesn't he know he's supposed to hold the guy's hand and kiss him the way Drinky McStaggers did?!??

Bonus: "It feels really good to work with a US president who wants to change the world and who understands the world." - French President Nicolas Sarkozy today.
