So, while wannabe American royalty were on their 23rd vacation or so, the heir to the throne of Britain and his little brother Harry spent the day on the southwestern coast of England sandbagging a burst wall to protect the property of lowly British citizens.
For the entire world to see, as they slogged through the mud working next to ordinary citizens, Wills and Harry were emulating their late mother, Princess Diana. Also setting a high bar for their heirs were “Let’s Move!” Michelle and Barry the Sandbagger, who spent the day knee-deep in powdery snowflakes and sand traps.
Big deal. It’s all Ruling Class PR, whether its two of the best known royals in the world slinging sandbags, or the US President and his consort slinging healthy hash in some homeless soup kitchen somewhere.
Obama is a dangerous jerk – but not because of comparisons like this.
