I was reading about today’s Gordon Brown story on the BBC site, and noticed a big difference in the tone and style of the comments compared to stateside blogs.  Remarks ranged from mild shock (“Oh dear.”) to alliterate (“bigots beget bygones”) to wry (“What a nice man.”).  If this had been one of our presidential campaigns, it wouldn’t have taken long for Godwin’s Law to be invoked.  No evidence of that here.
