Mr. President as Mr. Darcy?

I thought this article was a hilarious compare and contrast between Mr. President, Barrack Obama, and Mr. Darcy. Too funny! Here's a quote:
"Okay, so Obama doesn't seem brooding and moody like Mr. Darcy. And we haven't yet seen whether he looks as good in breeches as Colin Firth did in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. But this interview has shown me again that, as well as the astute mind, the postmodern and hybrid sensibilities, and his great smile, I'm more than happy to see Mr. Darcy-Obama move into the White House next week."
See Joanne Rendell's article, "Mr. Darcy at the White House," at the Huffington Post for the full article.


  1. Hello,

    I've just given your blog an award. Please vist my blog One eyed stuffed bunny and ... to claim it!

    Interesting article - thanks for pointing it out!

  2. OK, the image of Obama in breeches or anything else even remotely Darcy-like is enough to make my muse flee to the hills in horror! *shudders* I must now gaze for several hours at Matthew Macfadyen to get back in the mood! :)
