Mark Steyn: William & Kate have nothing on Obama | one, president, royal – Opinion – The Orange County Register.

In the American republic, even the dogs cost more. The Queen is a famous corgi lover and has been breeding them since she was a young girl. Now in her late eighties she’s slowing down and only keeps four. The president has one pooch, a photo-op accessory called Bo, who, unlike the corgis, requires a full-time handler. In contrast to the stingy remuneration offered by the Royal Household, the presidential dog-walker is one of 226 White House staff earning over $100,000 a year.

Do go read the whole thing. It is fascinating, frustrating and very funny. Typical Mark Steyn.
