Speculation is building as to which Kings and Queens precisely Scott Brown was conferring with in his secret meetings after John Walsh demanded a list. ProgressMass has helpfully posted a link to Wikipedia’s list of current sovereign monarchs and offered this illustration:
Michael Horan contributed a different list. Scott Brown’s Jubilee has suggested additional possibilities. And in the most thought-provoking comment, Christopher reminds us that Sarah Palin believed that the Queen ran England. Brown, similarly, may in fairness actually have believed he was conducting important diplomatic negotiations with royalty.
Sarah Palin Thought The Queen Ran Britain, According To New Film: Did one-time US vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin not know the United Kingdom was a democracy?
[T]he film, ‘Game Change’, is based on a 2010 book by the same name authored by well known American political journalists John Heilemann and Mark Halperin and stars Julianne Moore as Palin. …
Quizzed by McCain’s chief strategist Steve Schmidt on how she would react if Britain decided to withdraw its troops and support for operations in Iraq, Palin responded that she would “continue to have an open dialogue” with the Queen of England. When informed Queen Elizabeth II does not run Britain, Palin asks who does.
Schmidt has to tell her that the elected prime minister, then Gordon Brown, would be the one she would have to speak to about the UK’s involvement in Iraq.
In an interview with the LA Times the real life Schmidt confirms the incident took place.
