President Bush got off on the wrong foot by mis-speech-ifying. In remarks with Queen Elizabeth II, the President slipped up and suggested she'd visited the US in 1776. Or would that have been "the colonies" then? Anyway the Daily Telegraph says it went downhill from there:
"When you've just made it sound like the Queen is more than 200 years old, there may be a few ways of recovering from the gaffe. But turning to her and giving her a sly wink is probably not included in any book of royal etiquette."
Heh, heh, heh. At least he didn't give her a nickname. (The Daily Telegraph)
