Uh Oh.

I was doing my semi-usual run through Wisconsin's lefty blogs and came across this at Marginal Utility:

This came across my e-mail transom this morning. It's attributed to John Cleese, and it looks like it may have been making the rounds since late 2004/early 2005:

To the citizens of the United States of America

In light of your failure to elect a competent President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately.

Her Sovereign Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths and other territories (except Kansas, which she does not fancy), as from Monday next.

Your new prime minister, Tony Blair, will appoint a governor for America without the need for further elections. Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.
It then goes into a number of changes that will be effected. I admit, there's a couple good points (notably regarding beer), but then they go after football. Them's fighting words.
