Did I Miss Something?

Tonight Mark Steyn is pointing out the joys of "snotty-Brit house-style" as displayed in the editorials of the Economist.

The best part of the Economist's socialism-denial editorial is this head-scratcher:
For all Europe’s Obamamania Mr Obama is, in fact, one of the least European-minded of American presidents. JFK studied at the London School of Economics with Harold Laski, a leading British socialist. Bill Clinton went to Oxford University and surrounded himself with Rhodes scholars who liked to discuss the German educational model. John Kerry was famously not just French-speaking but also “French-looking”.
Uhhh....what? Did I miss something? John Kerry...President?

I guess that Economist writer didn't study under the esteemed German educational model...
