I picked up all sorts of unintentionally funny tidbits at the CPAC convention last month, but I really giggled over this one. It's a bumper sticker who's maker obviously did not get the Freedom Fries memo a few years back.
What red blooded conservative would use "gauche" to describe liberals? Curious, I went to the website listed and noticed that it was selling a book called Fight the Left with First Principled Conservatism. When I looked at the author's bio, suddenly it all fell into place...
Jean-Francois Orsini was born in Vietnam, grew up in Morocco and Monaco, and completed higher studies in France and the U.S., where he earned an MBA and a Ph.D. from the Wharton School. He is an entrepreneur, a college adjunct professor, and a business consultant. He lives in Washington, D.C.
This guy wasn't even born here. He's a foreigner! He's highly educated, lives on the east coast in a liberal city, and worst of all, he's a college professor doctor. (He can't even treat the wife or dogs if they bounce out of the back of the truck bed if you hit a big pothole.)
Real conservatives don't
eat quiche use "gauche."
