It’s come to this.
A Newt Gingrich ad blasts Mitt Romney for speaking French (h/t hotair):
I know, even if you can speak French you don’t want to do it too often. Just because. Even so, there was a time when men were expected to know a few languages as well as how to host a party, conduct a conversation, do DIY, strip a gun, shines shoes, tie an Oxford knot, identify birds and animals and a long list of other things. It was about being a man, open to learning and understanding.
On the assumption that advertisers know their audience, are they really saying that knowing a foreign language now turns off GOP voters? If that’s the case, never was it more aptly known as the ‘The Stupid Party’.
(UPDATE: I see downstairs that ATW commentator Ross saw this too)
