Thank you, President Bush...for giving me a good laugh!

This is SO funny. Think of all of our lefties who want to apologize to the world for America's sins.....Especially the biggest sin, which is believing that our way of life (or anything) is worth fighting for... And all of them wanting to suck-up to the supposedly superior "culture and sophistication" of Europeans. And expressing their mortification at being in a country led by a cowboy...and even worse, a Christian!

And now we see Euro leaders elbowing and slapping each other aside to bask in the refulgent sunshine of....Oh, I just can't say it, it's too too too......too appalling....too mind-bending....

NY Sun: Not to be outdone by President Sarkozy's amorous overture to President Bush in Washington, Prime Minister Brown of Britain has used the first major foreign policy speech of his premiership to insist that Britain is America's closest ally.

After decades of Anglo-French rivalry, in which France has vehemently deplored the global influence America and Britain have attained and what every president of France since Charles de Gaulle has described as "Anglo-Saxon culture," Mr. Sarkozy claimed during his visit to Washington last week that France, not Britain, is now America's best friend and partner.

Mr. Brown, who has been portrayed on both sides of the Atlantic as having distanced himself from America to avoid the charge against his predecessor, Tony Blair, that he was Mr. Bush's "poodle," fought back last night, claiming in a speech at a banquet thrown by the lord mayor of the city of London that the French president's bid to usurp Britain's traditional place alongside America would not succeed.

"It is no secret that I am a lifelong admirer of America," Mr. Brown said. And, in a thinly veiled reference to France's traditional dislike of America and its culture, he added, "I have no truck with anti-Americanism in Britain or elsewhere in Europe, and I believe that our ties with America — founded on values we share — constitute our most important bilateral relationship."

He welcomed France's late conversion to the American cause and a similar newfound affection for America expressed by Chancellor Merkel of Germany in her visit to Mr. Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas, over the weekend.... (Thanks to Rand)

The highest accolade any Euro-premier can hope for, is to allowed to make a pilgrimage to Crawford, TX. Ha ha ha.
