I owe this one to a guy over at Matthew Yglesias’ blog, at the Atlantic. Notice the resemblances, right down to the angle of the diagonals. Very Sprockets! Meanwhile, some nutter moron named Patrick Ruffini is complaining that Obama is using a foreign language (German) to communicate with foreigners (Germans) in a foreign country (Germany). What socialist nonsense will follow this act of depravity?! Pay him a visit and let him know what you think, why don’t you?
As Yglesias says, “Apparently it’s now unpatriotic to so much as concede that they speak foreign languages in foreign countries. Or maybe American politicians should only be allowed to speak in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and the UK.”
By the way, the last president of this country who spoke a foreign language with any degree of fluency was Thomas Jefferson. And we wonder how we’ve got ourselves so isolated and arrogant.
