Jeb Bush surrenders to the French

At first when I read that Bush had to apologized to France I thought it might have something to do with an insult of Jerry Lewis, but nope:

US presidential hopeful Jeb Bush has apologised to France for referencing their working week to insult a rival.

In light-hearted comments to reporters, Mr Bush said he had done a “disservice to the French” by using them to mock Marco Rubio’s senate voting record.

“I made the mistake of saying that the Congress operates on a French work week,” he was reported as saying.

He said he had since learned that the French work longer hours than the Germans do.

Jeb Can Fix It! — Probably by pledging that if elected he’ll make Bastille Day a federal holiday in the U.S. and then hope nobody notices the irony.
