Even though those British bozos did not invite his boss, Barack Obama, to the wedding, nor his boss' boss, Michelle Obamajay Carney ponders a question, file, Press Secretary Jay Carney was designated to say something nice in public (full text below) about the romantic Cinderella event that captivated millions on global TV today.

Meanwhile, the president of this former British colony, whose father came from a former British colony, was left to take his daughters and mother-in-law down South.

There, the president looked at Alabama tornado damage, and then everyone went to see inside a large building at the Kennedy Space Center because the Endeavour shuttle launch was postponed, at least until Monday.
