Winston Churchill, Pop Star?
In case you missed this, we have word this week
that Winston Churchill
is now climbing the British pop charts. This, in the wake of Prime Minister, David Cameron's
stirring speech last week in which he claimed that the conservatives "are the radicals now" makes it almost as interesting to watch political events unfold on the other side of the pond as it has been the last several months over here.
Of course, Cameron's fine speech came despite reports
that Cameron and the conservative Brits still don't get the Tea Party and don't much like being identified with it at home. Come to think of it, those Brits never really quite understood that first Tea Party either . . . so perhaps Cameron can be forgiven his disinclination to fully identify with his American political cousins?
