Okay, we shook off her ancestor, George III (who was actually a very nice man, though dotty at times), but I have to hand it to Queen Elizabeth II-she’s cutting back on her spending because of hard times. ABC News reports:

 According to a new report released by the Palace, Queen Elizabeth has cut her spending by $4 million in the last year. This year, the British government gave the $57.8 million taxpayer dollars to support the royal family. The monarchy this year cost each British citizen 94 cents.

 Ninety-four cents a year? Sounds like a bargain to me. She has even grounded the royal helicopter. Nancy Pelosi, are you listening?
