Mitt Romney is overseas doing what all presidential hopefuls do: trying to look presidential. But, wow, the presumptive Republican nominee had barely taken a step onto the world stage in London before he slipped on a banana peel. The savior of the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics questioned whether our Anglo-Saxon, er British cousins were ready to host the Olympics. This undiplomatic comment earned Romney a riposte so dry you’d swear it was missing olives and a chilled glass.
Meanwhile, the Senate passed a bill to eliminate the Bush tax cuts for income more than $250,000. Pity, it’s dead on arrival in the House. President Obama talked about the need for gun control — five days after the tragic “Batman” movie theater mayhem in Aurora, Colo. And there’s an ongoing drama between the children and the siblings of the relatives of the late King of Pop (not to be confused with the King of p-Op, who has yet to be crowned). Michael Jackson would be moon walking in his grave if he saw what was going on right now.
What? You didn’t know about the smackdown between Paris and Janet Jackson? Don’t worry. It’s not on the p-Op quiz. So, sharpen your pixels and get crackin’.
