A Toast to Stupidity

House Republicans try to dishonor an American culinary innovator - Joseph French. From Joe Conason:

Apropos of the politicians who are expunging the word "French" from cafeteria menus, a gastronomic historian writes: "French toast was not invented in France. In fact, it was invented in Albany, NY. Tavern owner Joseph French is credited with inventing the famous breakfast in 1724. Supposedly, Mr. French didn't know the proper usage of the possessive apostrophe and, instead of 'French's toast' he put 'French toast' on his menu."

Sorry, Scummy, you too.

Why do they hate America and Americans so much?
