"There's nothing special about Britain. You're just the same as the other 190 countries in the world. You shouldn't expect special treatment." Thus a huffy State Department official in answer to a query by the Daily Telegraph about the Obama dis of Gordon Brown & Co. Michael Totten argues for the special relationship between the U.S. and the U.K.--"It's not a Bush administration policy that's up for review. It has existed longer than Barack Obama has been alive"-and for the firing of the moron brigade at State that allowed this to happen.

On the other hand, there's case to be made for the State position: Britain's already at the Euroweenie-terrorist mixer, waiting heart all a-flutter on her folding chair for the thrilling shoulder tap from Hamas and Hezbollah.

On the third hand, so are we.
