Now that poor Mitt Romney has been called out for his “rude and graceless” remarks by none other than Carl Lewis — perhaps the greatest Olympian, who said of him in disgust, “some Americans just shouldn’t leave the country” — maybe his very bad news cycle is almost over. Has he said anything else awful? Well, this, which was a wee bit blorgh:
Asked whether he felt “partly English” [...], a chuckling Mr Romney replied: “Well, I’m married to a girl from Wales, and I’m a guy from Great Britain. So I feel like this is home too, I guess.”
But he hasn’t hocked a loogie on the Queen or taken a poo in the bidet, to our knowledge, so he’s ahead of the game, for him. But is there someone else, another American, who maybe is in London now not being “graceless and rude,” and embarrassing all of US America? Oh, hai Michelle Obama! Thank you for going to Englande for us!
For her whole (short) speech, including Michelle Obama talking touchingly about her father, go here. Unless you hate nice things.
