Obama's Coat Tails

Of course there is nothing wrong with congratulating President Obama on a successful inauguration but there is something unmistakably cringey about this one:

S3M-03260 Alasdair Allan (Western Isles) (Scottish National Party)
Lewis Congratulates Island Connection for New President— That the Parliament welcomes the inauguration of Barack Obama as 44th President of the United States of America; notes the welcome tradition of new American Presidents identifying their ancestors around the world, and further notes the particular pride in Ness on the Isle of Lewis that President Obama has ancestors from the township of South Dell.

Scotland has never felt so small.
