Dear Senator McCain,
A bit of humor on the campaign trail is a great way to engage your crowds, however your incessant jabs at France are way passed their due date. Your musings on France’s purported Anti-Americanism, specifically in presidential circles*, is not only inaccurate; it only serves to perpetuate Anti-French attitudes in your electorate and your party.
For the last five years, Republicans have bashed France and the French with complete impunity and you were no stranger to this form of trickle-down hatred**.
You are running for President of the United States of America not for Last Comic Standing.* “We now have a pro-American president of France, by the way, which shows that if you live long enough anything can happen” ** “They remind me of an aging movie actress in the 1940s who is still trying to dine out on her looks but doesn’t have the face for it.” John McCain, February 2003.
