The Obamas are in England right now where they're meeting with the country's most important figures: the Royal Family. What better way to show support for our economically floundering allies than to visit with a select group of people who live extravagantly off their state and have almost no influence over their country's policies?
Among the royal family members greeting the Obamas were Prince William and his new wife Kate Middleton…
Prince William and Kate Middleton have carried out their first royal duty as a married couple by meeting US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle today.
According to The Mirror, Wills and Kate met the Obamas at Buckingham Palace, with the occasion marking Middleton's first role as a member of the royal family, after marrying her prince last month.
I wonder what they talked about. My guess is, Barack and William started things off light, exchanging pleasantries about the newlyweds' honeymoon and complimenting each other's wives' dresses, then got down to business and discussed Fergie's royal wedding snub.
After the Obamas wrap things up in England, it's off to France, where they'll meet with the chick who played Amélie.

Everyone on Earth knows that the most important thing happening this week is the marriage of one inbred (but seemingly very nice) English helicopter pilot to some hot chick. Everyone, that is, except for the Palestinians, who remain annoyingly obsessed with lifting themselves out of poverty and desperation.
Hey, guys, we don't even know who designed Kate's wedding thong yet. Try and focus on something important, maybe? No? Ugh, fine. Then go ahead and form a coalition government, as if that's some kind of big development…
The two main Palestinian factions, Fatah and Hamas, announced Wednesday that they were putting aside years of bitter rivalry to create an interim unity government and hold elections within a year, a surprise move that promised to reshape the diplomatic landscape of the Middle East.
The deal, brokered in secret talks by the caretaker Egyptian government, was announced at a news conference in Cairo where the two negotiators referred to each side as brothers and declared a new chapter in the Palestinian struggle for independence, hobbled in recent years by the split between the Fatah-run West Bank and Hamas-run Gaza.
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz… Oh, I'm sorry, was someone saying something about World Peace or the destruction of Israel or something? We couldn't hear it over the sound of ourselves screaming with excitement over the marriage of two insanely rich white people in the country that maybe had something to do with the division of territories in the Middle East, or something?
Whatevs! WHO BAKED THE CAAAAAKE?!
