Powerline reader Ken Gage has an interesting take on Obama’s less than thoughtful gift to British PM Gordon Brown:
Going back to the topic of is he just that stupid or is he doing it on purpose, consider the fact that Gordon Brown is blind in one eye and has some visual deterioration in the other (how much is unclear). A calculated insult could not have been more on-target.
Let’s not be ridiculous. Obama isn’t capable of such a calculated insult.
