Dohbama strikes again, disses U.K. Updated: Will the Queen re-gift the iPod?
Because, after all, nothing says “special relationship” like a gadget you can buy in every mall in the western world. What’d he get Prince Philip? An Xbox?
The inevitable punchline — almost as inevitable as the fact that Gordon Brown’s DVDs were the wrong format: She already owns one.
But here's something that neither of them seem to know. There are different types of iPods.
It appears that even Fox"News" reported that the Queen requested it. Oh, really?
BRET BAIER (host): Major, my wife tells me I'm not the best gift giver, but after President Obama gave Prime Minister Brown the set of DVDs that didn't work in Great Britain, we hear that he gave the queen an iPod?
MAJOR GARRETT (Fox News senior White House correspondent): Yes, a video iPod, which we are told by White House staff the queen requested. She has an audio iPod, but not a video iPod.
What's on it? A video of her 2007 trip to the United States -- meaning Washington, D.C., and Virginia. Plus, also, on the audio side of that iPod, composer Richard Rogers, some of his famous American hits. And it's signed. And we're told it went over pretty well with the queen. Bret.
BAIER: OK. I'll add it to my list. Major, thanks.
I suppose Malkin and Allah can't seem to grasp the difference between "audio" and "video". Then again, conservatives never were to keen on technology.
