Earlier today President Obama signed a guest book at Westminster Abbey. He signed his name and dated the entry: 24 May 2008.
Not being content to embarrass our country only once today, he completely screwed up by offering a toast to the queen as God Save The Queen was playing. Protocol dictates that one stays silent during the song, and toasts afterwards.
Some comments from HotAir.com:
"And they look down on hillbillies."
"SNL wouldn’t bother spoofing this unless it was Palin or Bush that did it."
"Just curious, did Obama bow to the Queen, or does he save that for Arab princes?"
"The most brilliant president we have ever had required note cards to offer a toast at dinner…. *sigh*"
"Somewhere in Heaven… Winston Churchill is smiling."
"AMG so awkward I had to stop watching, I didn’t even enjoy it for the schadenfreude."
And from the ABC story about the event: "Seriously, reading off note cards for a toast? and his supporters ragged on Palin for writing speaking points for a speech on her hand??? Lol, the irony!"
What's sad is that by extension he makes the rest of us look bad.
