Today Drudge linked this UK Daily Mail report on the sycophantic British Prime Minister being mesmerized by the black U.S. president — but it was all foretold in a new HBO sketch show called “Little Britain”. The display described in the Daily Mail article below IS this two-minute sketch (audio in English but available only with Polish subtitles):


Now read this excerpt from the UK Daily Mail article, for comparison:

Obama told a joke and Brown laughed… and laughed… and laughed… and laughed
By Quentin Letts

Oh Gordon, your smile! The Prime Minister, appearing alongside Barack Obama after breakfast today, stared at his American visitor and almost shattered the TV camera lenses with his moony grin.

You could have played Jewish harp with his lower lip, it was stretched so twangy tight.

Messrs Mills and Boon, when next looking for a book cover for one of their romantic novellas, when next seeking an illustration of doggy devotion, could do worse than use a photograph of the Prime Minister at the meeting.

Mr Obama uttered a sentence. Mr Brown nodded. Mr Obama paused. Mr Brown froze, frowning. Mr Obama made a very slight joke. Mr Brown gassed himself, laughing for a good 30 seconds, eyelids fluttering like the wings of a soft-flapping Cabbage White.


My friend Obama: Gordon enjoys Barack’s jokes. Possibly a bit too much

…Mr Obama fiddled with the cuff of one sleeve, Prince Charles-style, while Mr Brown hosed him down with treacle. The Prime Minister, fluffing with nerves in a couple of places, spoke of the president’s ‘leadership, vision, courage, dynamism, energy, achievements…’


The President ushers his host from the room


Love fest: Gordon praised and praised … and praised and praised Obama

…On and on it went. Stop, man! But he would not. ‘A partnership of purpose, resilient, constant.’ We were in total love mode.

Mr Brown had by now turned his profile to us and it meant we could see the silhouette of his pouchy-cheeked, greedy grin.

His lips puckered, forming the shape of a robin’s beak, and he nodded slowly, repeatedly, at times even swallowing, so much was he salivating.

When he turned back to face us his eyes were narrow with creamy pleasure and he pushed forth his chin, stretching his lower neck.

Now he placed his hands behind his back and bounced a half inch or so on the balls of his feet, relishing the sound of Solomon Obama’s replies to a few questions from the Press.

They left with Mr Obama snaking an arm round his host’s shoulder and ushering him from the room. Very much an ‘I’m in charge’ gesture.

Meanwhile, why is Barack Obama so happy with this kind of reception, given that he wrote this about white people in his book Dreams From My Father, which Ann Coulter cited:

Obama tells a story about taking two white friends from the high school basketball team to a “black party.” Despite their deep-seated, unconscious hatred of blacks, the friends readily accepted. At the party, they managed not to scream the N-word, but instead “made some small talk, took a couple of the girls out on the dance floor.”

But with his racial hair-trigger, Obama sensed the whites were not comfortable because “they kept smiling a lot.”

So if you’re white but you’re not Gordon Brown, when you meet Obama, be sure to scowl.

‘OBAMA BEACH’ SALUTE (Post Wire Services, June 7)

It was supposed to be a tribute for D-Day veterans, but British Prime Minister Gordon Brown had another hero in mind.

The embattled PM referred to historic Omaha Beach as “Obama Beach” during his speech at ceremonies marking the 65th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Normandy, France.

“And so, next to Obama Beach, we join President Obama in paying particular tribute to the spectacular bravery of American soldiers,” Brown said, oblivious to his Freudian slip.

He nearly made the same mistake again seconds later, while lauding the US soldiers who battled on “Oba . . . Omaha Beach for people whose names they never knew and faces they never saw.” […]
