Don’t Get Around Much Any More

Beleaguered British Prime Minister Gordon Brown had another oops moment:

Gordon Brown was asked in theHouse of Commons to congratulateReese Witherspoon, who visited Parliament Wednesday in her role as a campaigner againstdomestic violence.

replied that he was “grateful that Renee Witherspoon is leading this
campaign.” He said the actress had spoken movingly at the funeral ofdirector Anthony Minghella.

Renee Zellweger starred in Minghella’s “Cold Mountain” and spoke at hismemorial service last year.

Witherspoon is the Academy award-winning star of “Walk the Line” and “Legally Blonde.”

Gordon Brown is a good example of how hilarious the humorless can be. I’d still vote Labour if I were a Brit but Gordon’s fate is to play John Major to Tony Blair’s Margaret Thatcher. It’s a pity on many levels because Brown is smarter and more substantive than all of them but, like John Major, he gets no points for style.

Speaking of style, what’s more stylish than Nat King Cole singing a Duke Ellington tune?

  1. Reminds me of a favorite parody of that song a dear friend told me years ago:
    Went out drinkin’ last night…
    Puked all over the floor…
    Cleaned it up with my toothbrush…
    Don’t brush my teeth much anymore…
