From Newsvine: Former Mass. Governor Endorses Romney

Umm... Of course he does?



No, obviously, the actual former governor of Massachusetts who endorsed Romney was William F. Weld, who held the office in the early to mid-Nineties. He defended Romney's tax cut record, waxed lyrical about New Hampshire, and then
the Harvard-educated Weld broke into French to say, "Each to his own."
Well la-de-da!

Weld's Francophilia actually presages a new batch of Romney ads that will appear next week, among them:
Mitt Romney: Un jour sans vin est comme un jour sans soleil.

Mitt Romney: Honni soit qui mal y pense.
And, of course:
Mitt Romney: Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir?
I wish my knowledge of French proverbs were better.
