Something Up With Which I Will Not Put

Obama has returned a bust of Winston Churchill to the Brits. (They loaned it to us after 9/11 as a show of solidarity.)

Only problem? The Brits didn't ask for it back and are rather offended over the whole thing. So much for that whole, "Obama will make the world love us again" story line.

Have I ever mentioned that Winston Churchill is one of my heroes? I say it's just as well his bust isn't sitting somewhere where it has to look at Obama, but that's just me.

H/T: Red State

Here's another view on the incident:

Speculation seems to be essentially the same - Obama may not be a Churhill fan.
