Jeers to a Clown

So Mitt Romney, whose campaign claimed, in racially charged term, that his election would "restore Anglo-Saxon relations" between Great Britain and the United States, is not, in fact, going down well, there.

In fact, he's bombing. He was rebuked by both David Cameron and London Mayor Boris Johnson--both Conservatives!--for retroactively insulting Britain's Olympic games. Cameron's riposte, "Of course it's easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere," i.e., Utah, was smooth, while Johnson's was epic:

Romney also managed to blunder in his meeting with Cameron, blithely telling the press afterward that he had met the Head of MI-6--not good form, old chap, it's a Secret Service!--and to forget the name of Labour Leader Ed Milliband during their meeting, addressing him as "Mr. Leader," a term not generally employed here or in the UK.

Also, "looking out the backside of 10 Downing Street?" Epic Fail.

As they say in LOL-cat land,needz moar Mandy Patinkin.
