Maybe they're still pissed at the shitty gifts from their first visit

Once not so long ago one of the world’s top celebrities in his own right, Barack Obama and his wife Michelle did not make the cut for invitations to the royal wedding in London next spring.
On April 29 in Westminster Abbey with all the grace and pageantry sure to capture international imaginations, commoner Kate Middleton will marry Prince William, son of Princess Diana....But the current residents of the White House will not be there, according to the Daily Mail.
The official excuse provided to the British paper by royal sources is that the royal couple wants to share their special nuptial moment with ordinary citizens. Anyway, it is not an official state event, they said. And, you know, Westminster only seats 2,000.
Nice try.
So then how to explain the invites to French president Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni?
And how to explain the invitations to England-loving President and Mrs. Reagan for the wedding of Diana and Prince Charles back in 1981? And the subsequent invitations to the American first family for the wedding of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson five years later?

I thought Obama had not been invited to the reception as it would have been too embaressing for him to be mistaken for a waiter

That's awesome! I'm sure he'll still send a gift. Maybe a framed portrait of himself.

Maybe they don't like coons?

Hey, are the Bushs going? Were the Clintons invited? Serve this jug-eared moron right, for the crappy dvd and Ipod he gave to the queen. She gave him a pen set made from the wood of the HMS Resolute, and he gives her an Ipod? WTF?
