John Kerry Wows'em in Berlin
Hat tip PJ Media
Great choice, Obama
John Heinz-Kerry was in Berlin this week where he spoke to a group of schoolkids. We'll let PJ Media pick up the story.
“In America, you have a right to be stupid if you want to be, and you have a right to be disconnected to somebody else if you want to be, and we tolerate it. We somehow make it through that. Now, I think that’s a virtue. I think that’s something worth fighting for.”
“Sehr gut, danke. Alles gut. Deine schuhe sind fantastisch, ja?” the secretary of State said. (Translation: “Very good, thank you. All is well. Your shoes are fantastic.”) He apparently meant to say the schools were fantastic.
He could have said, "Ich bin ein Berliner", which means "I am a jelly donut".
Next time, John, you better take that multi-lingual wife of yours along.
Too bad that kid never got his question answered. The correct answer is that our Muslim teenagers tend to be more assimilated than the ones in Europe, but John couldn't have said that, could he?
