The hombre-ette speaks

A quote from Michelle Bachman from Andrew Sullivan's quote of the day:
"We need one strong hombre or hombre-ette, and I'm the hombre-ette to go and stand for you in Washington DC!" - Michele Bachmann, campaigning in South Carolina. As Brian Montopoli points out, "The Spanish word for woman is mujer."


And not that it matters, but -ette is the feminine ending only in French.

and you know who the French are: the guys who lost to Mexico on Cinco de Mayo. Something about an Austrian emperor.
