It's Chutzpah, Not Choot-spa: Bachmann needs a Yiddish lesson

Michele Bachmann makes another mistake -- this time as Salon and others are noting -- it's her incorrect use of Yiddish that is getting attention.

In an appearance on Fox News on July 13th, Bachmann accused President Obama of having "choot-spa." Too bad the word is actually "chutzpah" which means nerve or audacity.

Perhaps it's time for Bachmann to get in touch with Alan Dershowitz, who wrote the book entitled Chutzpah, for some Yiddish lessons.
