Yes: Obama's "Special Gift" to the Queen Included Obama's Greatest Hits

Yes. Yes yes yes.

Here's how fucking taken with himself he is: When I saw commenters speculating about this, I thought, "No way. Come on guys, don't be ridiculous."

That's how ridiculous this is. So ridiculous I discounted it as too ridiculous and thought those suggesting it were ridiculous.

But here's what's on the iPod, among pictures of the queen's previous visits (as if she doesn't have an entire staff of court photographers for that purpose):

* Photos from President Obama’s Inauguration

* Audio of then-state senator Obama’s speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, and

* Audio of President Obama 2009 Inauguration Address

Remember Gordon Brown's gifts had great historic import, and were intended to flatter the recipient. So Obama decided, "Okay, historic import, eh?" And so the greatest historic achievement he could conceive of was his own fucking election.

And of course his gift, rather than flattering the recipient, instead flatters himself.

Here's how CNN headlined the story earlier, by the way:


A "special" iPod. As if it's specially handcrafted from scrimshaw and hobbit-skins. Instead of just loaded with a few Wal*Mart 99 cent downloads.

As special as the Special Olympics.

Dave from Garfield Ridge wrote earlier to me:

Can I be embarrassed about my Commander-in-Chief yet?

The President. . . of the United States. . . visits the Queen of England. . . our mother country. . .

. . .And he makes her a mix tape.

Even worse -- a mix tape of his own songs. From his garage band, Barack Obama & the Golden Unicorns.

Thanks to Slublog for the CNN headline catch.
