Well, there were other contenders as always, but this super-creepy comment piece in the Sunday Telegraph, in which Roberts doesn't just lick the posterior of the current U.S. President but climbs into it, won it by a country mile for our diminutive history man.
Roberts, the 'eminent' historian who, in the lead up to the war with Iraq compared the threat posed by that sanctions-devastated country, with its Dad's Army and non-existence air-force, with the threat posed by Nazi Germany at its peak, believes that history will say that we 'misunderestimated George Bush'.
Furthermore he claims that:
"history will also shine an unforgiving light on those ludicrous conspiracy theories that claim that the Iraq War was fought for any other reason than to implement the 14 UN resolutions that Saddam that had been flouting for 13 years."
Yes, that's right, the US went to war, without UN Security Council support, in order to enforce UN Resolutions. Like they do all the time when UN Resolutions are flouted......
UPDATE: Freddy Gray at The American Conservative blog has a great post about Roberts' sycophancy, and why it might lead to some rich rewards.
