Do the Brits Really Hate America?

The MSM is playing up the ugly American theme again:

LONDON (AFP) - People in Britain view the United States as a vulgar, crime-ridden society obsessed with money and led by an incompetent president whose Iraq policy is failing, according to a newspaper poll.

The United States is no longer a symbol of hope to Britain and the British no longer have confidence in their transatlantic cousins to lead global affairs, according to the poll published in The Daily Telegraph.

The YouGov poll found that 77 percent of respondents disagreed with the statement that the US is "a beacon of hope for the world".

No link to the poll, but none really needed.

I think of Britain as a great ally, a place where people have bad teeth and they have hot, naked chicks shown in the daily papers.

I think of the nation as one that once exported great music and now exports garbage that could be played by ten-year olds, but will export great music once again.

I think of Britain as a nation that can be the height of comedy and drama and the dregs of both.

I think hooligans and tea parties, the Sex Pistols and the Beatles and bad food and great beer.

I think of Britain as a nation that helps us when needed and we've returned the favor twice.

They are our friends and I know they will remain so even with the ever-creeping issues they are facing such as a large Muslim population and the socialism that invites that population to take great advantage.

One can hope.
