First Ann Romney’s Hating On The Germans; Now The Germans Are Too

Yesterday the hardworking staff noted a drive-by swipe at Germans by Ann Romney in a hobby-horse lawsuit reported by the New York Times:

As her disease went into remission, she began regularly traveling to Mr. Ebeling’s stables in Moorpark, Calif., an hour northwest of Los Angeles. Friends and acquaintances described the trainer as patient and low-key but capable of driving students hard. Asked if she was ever unhappy with Mr. Ebeling’s instruction, Mrs. Romney said in a deposition in the lawsuit, “I think that is not a fair question because we all get upset at certain times with anybody that is — you know, especially a German.”

Turns out even the Germans are down on “a German.” From Der Spiegel (via Arts Journal):

Study Finds Germans Incapable of Enjoying Life

With low unemployment and solid economic growth, things are going better than ever for Germans. But a new study shows they’re practically incapable of enjoying it. Not only do they find it difficult to cut loose and experience pleasure, but their “joy gene” is broken, researchers say.

Bummer.

    It’s all good as long as you don’t mention the war. I mentioned it once but I don’t think they noticed.
