Apparently, one of Mitt Romney’s minions thinks that President Obama doesn’t understand the whole “Anglo-Saxon” thing. I guess he thinks that the WHITE House has gotten a little too, ah, non-Anglo-Saxon for his liking.
Here’s the thing. When the 2008 election was going on, I was doing some research on my mom’s genealogy, and I discovered that we are distantly related to the (now) President through a common English ancestor. But that’s not all. That common ancestor was a direct descendant of William the Conqueror’s brother (and therefore, so is the President).
So, yeah, that whole Anglo-Saxon thing? The President’s a Norman. And we know what the Normans did to those Anglo-Saxon guys.
Watch out, Mitt and Minions.
