Michele Bachmann’s “choots-pah” fail

Like many of her GOP colleagues, Rep. Michele Bachmann has positioned herself as a staunch defender of Israel and friend of Jews everywhere against President Obama’s supposed lack of Jewish support.

But she ran into some trouble while trying to trying to show off her Yiddish skills on Fox News last night, pronouncing the word “Chutzpah” — meaning audacity — as “choot-spa.”

As with “Chanukah,” the “ch” should be pronounced as an “h” sound, but apparently Bachmann missed that lesson in pandering school.
