Ain't That a Kick in the...

Still bitter over 230 years later, it seems the Brits have a nit to pick with their former colonies, at least according to this story from the AFP:

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.

Now, regular INOTBB readers might be shocked to learn that I'm going to have to defend the U.S. (of course since I'm a liberal and all, I generally side with the terrorists) on this one. Especially when one of the results is:

A massive 83 percent of those questioned said that the United States doesn't care what the rest of the world thinks.

That's just so wrong.

The United States--or at least BushCo--doesn't care what the rest of the United States thinks, either. So why should the English get to feel all special? To put it in terms any footballer can understand, it's like this--the White House is Wayne Rooney and all the rest of us are Ricardo Carvalho's groin.
