Colorado Gov. tells French jokes at Michigan GOP convention
Gov. Bill Owens, Colorado Republican, brought the house down over the weekend during a keynote speech to 2,000 at the Michigan Republican Party convention by making fun of the "bete noire" nation among conservatives.
"You know why they planted those big trees along the boulevard in Paris? So the invading armies could march in the shade," the Denver Post reported Mr. Owens as saying.
And, he continued, "You know why the new French navy has glass-bottom boats? So it can see the old French navy."

it goes on to say that twice in the past year, he has refused to meet with French diplomats. any Colorado DUers know much about this guy?

Watch out, the Repugs will bitch about our "politcal correctness." I just think we make far better jokes than them.
