Rising to a crescendo in her assault on President Obama’s handling of the debt ceiling mishegoss, Michele Bachmann told Fox News that the president had lots of chutzpah. Regrettably, that wonderfully expressive Yiddish word came out as CHOOTS-pah. Oy. Today, Majority Report’s Sam Seder offerered this hilarious take on candidates trying to appeal to Jewish voters.

In future, before appropriating other gems from the Yiddish lexicon, Rep. Bachmann would do well to consult which has helpfully provided a gold mine of words and phrases AND their pronunciations…

Such a mitzvah!
