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.

Ever wonder why that Welsh guy on your Ultimate Frisbee team always gets pissed (annoyed, not drunk) when you're all out getting pissed (drunk, not annoyed) and you say something like, "Ah, Welsh, English… whatever. You all live in England"? Or what the Queen of England is doing on that money you brought back from that weird creepy strip club across the border in Canada? Or why — when you went into hiding after that business deal gone awry and you woke up in the hull of a schooner just off the South Sandwich Islands — the city in which you pulled yourself bleeding from the freezing cold south Atlantic Ocean was named after King Edward?
Well, this video should clear things up for you…

The Daily Dish's Andrew Sullivan was on The Colbert Report last night to discuss the clustershag Britons are currently experiencing, and the responses are apparently pouring in…
Was that a beard, or did a beaver die on your face?
Does it have to be one or the other? Isn't compromise supposed to be the upside of a parliamentary system?
The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11:30pm / 10:30c.
