Obama Apparently Not Allowed To Employ Foreign Languages

Over at The Next Right, Patrick Ruffini is really, really worked up over Barack Obama's speech in Berlin, and wants to put the Senator in...uhm - Deutch? - for daring to print posters in German, the language that Germans speak in Germany. Better that Berliners wither in confusion over the speech, I suppose!

Anyway, Ruffini calls the posters "extraordinary" and a "lapse in judgment" and "breathtakingly arrogant." But Ruffini is losing his bearings! As it turns out, John McCain has a bilingual website of his own! And bilingual advertising! And he's even done a bilingual version of those adorable townhalls he loves so much! And I find none of those things to be "extraordinary" or "breathtakingly arrogant" or a "lapse in judgment." So perhaps Ruffini would like to explain himself on this matter. My moron-to-English dictionary is standing by.
