He Speaks French!

There is so much one could say about the political campaigning going on these days. Thankfully, here in California we're not targeted by the bulk of it just at the moment. I hope that holds true for just a while longer.

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?
