Democrats, with the aid of Fleet Street, ginned up a phony controversy last week, after Mitt Romney speculated out loud that maybe the Brits weren’t ready for the Olympics.

Exhibit 1: Noted Conservative Tool Piers Morgan points out that everyone in the UK was saying the same thing before the Olympics:
In related news: A poll of 10,000 random Americans shows that Romney’s off-handed remarks about the London Olympics are more important to them than unemployment, the gathering double-dip recession, and the avalanche of debt about to inundate this country.
No, not really.
But the Dems and the Praetorian Guard (nee the Media) are going to do their best.
