SHOCKER: Being "Anglo-Saxon" Didn't Help Mitt Romney in the U.K.
Thanks to one of Mitt Romney's advisors, a mere 24 hours ago I was bemoaning how no matter how many PBS documentaries on the history of Windsor Castle I make my family sit though--or how much Depeche Mode I listen to--I'd never be able to do my part to restore any measure of "Anglo-Saxon" understanding to the special relationship between the United States and the Great Britain.
And if my half black, half Irish behind can't restore any specialness to the relationship between these two nations, you KNOW the most famous Black Irish dude in the world--President Obama--won't be able to do it, either.
Of course, it would be really racist to suggest that since Obama's black he can't understand human beings in another country. Obviously the savage Irish heritage is the problem. After all those Brits have a centuries-long disdain for our people from the Emerald Isle. Obama might accidentally kick off a world war by ranting about reparations from the potato famine.
Then I saw #RomneyShambles trending on Twitter this afternoon and discovered that Mitt Romney got all ""Yeah, you really do suck on your teeny tiny irrelevant island" about London's preparation for the Olympics. And...SHOCKER: the Brits weren't throwing their hearts at his feet and writing "Give Romney a pass for this diss cos he's Anglo-Saxon!" in their newspapers.
Prince Charles got all, "I KNOW HE DIDN'T!"
Then he ran and told his mom:
Indeed, Romney needs to learn the rule that I can talk smack about my mama, but I better not hear you talk about my mama. Even if every single Brit he came across was like "OMG, we are super unprepared for this Olympics," Romney should've known that all he needed to say was, "Congrats on pulling this off. It's going to be great...even if our track stars and basketball team are gonna take home all the medals."
Since he didn't know how to say that, Twitter is having a field day on him. They've even calling Romney "the American Borat."
Yep, I think it's safe to say Romney's blown his chance to prove to the Brits that he is the Chosen One that should be voted into the office of Head Anglo-Saxon in Charge of the United States. Hmm...don't you wonder if that advisor's been fired yet?
