But that doesn't mean I'm entirely sequestered. Here's a bit of a commercial targeted against Mitt Romney I picked up in a news report:
"And just like John Kerry, he speaks French, too."Now, I can certainly understand why a Republican would want to tie one of his competitors to a former failed Democratic presidential candidate. And I even get that France is a popular target of ridicule for not having supported some American counter-terrorism efforts. But attacking Romney because he happens to know the language? Come on, folks, really? Of all the reasons you might suggest that means he wouldn't be as good a president as you would, that's the one you pull out?
