I thought hypocrisy couldn't get any worse and then this.

She must be his drinking buddy because she's obviously drunk.

Another fact that this world is run by a few insane in-bred people that think up these things and are able to force us to look at their horrible deeds.

So far removed from reality, that reality itself evades them.

They must be drunk too.
That's right....Democrats.

That was my first thought, in fact every time I see that piece of human garbage I think of that poor lady and how she suffered.

He can't actually be knighted because he's (obviously) not British. It will only be a so-called "honorary knighthood".

Don't put any stock in anything the British do. They are irrelevant. The Queen is a big, old doooouche-a-bagga.

Swimming has been known since prehistoric times; the earliest record of swimming dates back to Stone Age paintings from around 7,000 years ago. Written references date from 2000 BC. Some of the earliest references include the Gilgamesh, the Iliad, the Odyssey, the Bible (Ezekiel 47:5, Acts 27:42, Isaiah 25:11), Beowulf, and other sagas. In 1538, Nikolaus Wynmann, a German professor of languages, wrote the first swimming book, The Swimmer or A Dialogue on the Art of Swimming (Der Schwimmer oder ein Zwiegespräch über die Schwimmkunst). Competitive swimming in Europe started around 1800, mostly using breaststroke. In 1873 John Arthur Trudgen introduced the trudgen to Western swimming competitions, after copying the front crawl used by Native Americans. Due to a British disregard for splashing, Trudgen employed a scissor kick instead of the front crawl's flutter kick. Swimming was part of the first modern Olympic games in 1896 in Athens. In 1902 Richard Cavill introduced the front crawl to the Western world. In 1908, the world swimming association, Fédération Internationale de Natation (FINA), was formed. Butterfly was developed in the 1930s and was at first a variant of breaststroke, until it was accepted as a separate style in 1952.

Maybe he is being knighted for supporting the Irish Whiskey trade. Or perhaps for his support of the Marthas Vineyard anti bridge toll association.

A joke at best!

Nothing like Knighting another Liberal piece of garbage. McCartney, Elton John...I am sure the biggest low-life Liberal of them all, Bruce Springsteen, will be next. Liberals have destryed this country...and they are ugly people too!

And if a Brit wrote similar about any of your Presidents, there would be many in the US up in arms. ER II happens to be pretty cool - so drop that. Learn a little how our system works, the award will have been recommended by some idiot in the Brown administration, it is not from the Queen.
