John Kerry Brought James Taylor to Apologize to France

Apparently, in an act of apology for missing the anti-terrorism protests in France last Sunday, which featured over a million people including, but not limited to, leaders from most of the world's major countries, we hauled 70s folk singer James Taylor all the way over to Paris to sing "You've Got a Friend' at a press conferene. I don't even know why we have a State Department anymore.

Just...Just watch the video. And maybe weep for the future of humanity. I don't know. 

I think John Kerry was then expecting everyone to cuddle. 

America, I want you to understand that this is a real thing that happened. This is a thing and it happened and it was real and we did it. In response to terrorism. This might be the most embarrassing moment of my life and I once missed the announcement that a middle school spirit day was cancelled and showed up to 7th grade in a poodle skirt. 

Klaus and the Lisbon Treaty: No Need to Hurry

By on 10.16.09 | 6:45AM

While Britain will be a huge beneficiary if Czech President Vaclav Klaus delays ratification of the Lisbon Treaty and allows for a UK referendum, Klaus's defiant stance is one driven by care for the Czech Republic whose best interests he does and should have at heart.

David Cameron, leader of the British Conservative Party -- tipped by the polls to become Britain's next Prime Minister by next June at the latest -- has pledged to hold a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty if it is not ratified before the next UK general election. President Klaus has practically taken on mythical status among British EU-skeptics since a referendum on Lisbon is a sure-fire way to kick-start the renegotiation of Britain's unsatisfactory relationship with the European Union.
