With John McCain surging in the polls (to varying degrees), the chattering classes in Britain have started their drumbeat of warnings to the American public not to elect McCain over Barack Obama. Hot Air linked this column in their headlines last night in which Jonathan Freedland of the Guardian (natch) warns that if Obama is defeated, "the world's verdict will be harsh".
I saw an online version of the Mirror's front page from the 2004 election shown above, and it captures perfectly the Euopean attitude towards Americans in general. In their eyes, something like half (or more) of all Americans are Cletus the slack-jawed yokel from the Simpsons.
You know what Jonathan? Fuck you. When you guys elect an unqualified ethnic minority with close associates in the IRA and a few years in the House of Lords, half of which were spent running for Prime Minister, then you can lecture us. Until then, piss off, as my British buddies are fond of saying.
