When President Obama snubbed British PM Gordon Brown a couple of weeks ago by giving him a set of DVDs (whereas Brown gave Obama a collection of uniquely historical gifts), some wondered if they would even play in the UK, due to DVD region restrictions. I thought that was unnecessarily cynical; surely the White House would at least have gone to the trouble to get region 2 DVDs.
I was wrong. This White House is really starting to look uniquely incompetent.
