Yup, there isn't anything a red-blooded American likes better than some Limey who got his trash whooped in the Revolutionary War coming around bad mouthing our merciless wars of aggression and nuclear holocost. Uh huh, Mr. Contintental, do tell us your thoughts about the Civil War, how nobody was the good guy and nobody was the bad guy. I guess that whole slavery thing just wasn't worth it from the European perspective. And, what a surprise, the Brit doesn't like W!

Should we talk about all those lovely and delicate British conquests where they so humanely and gently machine gunned and bombed the natives before taking a break for afternoon tea and a rousing game of cricket. Cheerio, good fellow! Student visa revocation anyone?

Personally, I cannot wait for comments on his visit to Boston Harbor, Lexington and Concord, the Liberty Bell, Valley Forge, Monticello, and Colonial Williamsburg. Do tell us if they were all good guys and find a pithy Bob Dylan quote that fits, will you good chap? There's a good sport.

Snark Boy/Girl,

Where shall I begin? How about this conversation between Mr. Lincoln and the Old Line State:

Abraham Lincoln: Good morning, Maryland, would you like to stay in the Union?

Maryland: Sure, as long as we can keep our slaves.

Abe: Not a problem.

Now on to the Revolution...

English Upper Classes vs. English Upper Classes. Nothing "American" about it.

Je ne suis pas "Contintental" (sic). I come from an island, not a continent, you incontitent incompenent.

I've seen the Libety Bell, btw. Huge crack in it. Appropriate really.

Oh, and lose the pink, matey.


The Bloggernacle Limey

What a wonderfully self-serving condensation of the Civil War, and the Revolutionary War as well.

If the crack is so appropriate, then go back to Jolly Old Enguhlund and enjoy the fine food and fine weather there, mate.

Careful, Snarker, such displays of Limey-knowledge and football-slang might reveal your identity.

Go ahead and guess, Oik. You're prolly a Chelsea fan.
