Dan Abrams has been documenting the misstatements and missteps of some of the presidential candidates on the campaign trail and Wednesday night, he pulled out a whopper from the nosediving Mr. 9/11 himself. Shockingly, this little gaffe had nothing to do with 9/11, it was all about immigrants and language.

Rudy has been pretending to be tough on illegal immigration and has repeatedly said that he believes all immigrants should be able to read, write and speak English in order to become U.S. citizens -- then turns around and airs a campaign ad in Florida ...wait for it...in SPANISH. Abrams and guest Rachel Maddow couldn't contain their laughter...neither could I.

Maddow: "How do you say hypocrite in Spanish?"
