    New president for France

    I thought it was really good news that France has elected a conservative (for them) president, beating the socialist candidate. From his early statements, he want to reconcile with the United States. I think that improved relations with our traditional ally is important. I also found it funny that one of things on his platform was to end the 35 hour work week in France. I guess that is what socialism does for you.

    Yeah, well, first he'd have to export the ********. That would leave a national population of oh, around 1,000 people...

    I think part of reconciling with us, is that they keep the ********, and take some back from Canada

    Harry: Oh yeah, and go where? Where are we gonna go?
    Lloyd: I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.
    Harry: Oh, I don't know, Lloyd. The French are ********.

    France will still suck. When do they lose their "country" status?

    This is a step in the right direction from the sounds of it.

    "I've seen a lot of changing, in the way you feel about me, and in the way I feel about you. In here, there were two guys killing each other, but I guess that's better than twenty million. I guess what I'm trying to say, is that if I can change, and you can change, everybody can change!"

    And I bet you thought that the last person called in the NFL draft was known as "Mr. Irrelevant". I'd say the President of France has a better shot at that title.

    Re: New president for France

    Odd that a person who is pro choice, has an alternative life style, and hates GW Bush can still be considered "conservative", but it shows how progressive the Euros are compared to us.

    Sarkozy's full support and belief in the need for action regarding global warming is also troubling to the "Bushies" but is generally accepted fact to most mammals, as well as people who believe in "science".

    We'll see how it goes. It's not like the French refused to support an ill-concieved, misrepresented war or anything.

    Yeah, that is why I added "for them". It's pretty much a given that any Euro will support reforms related to global warming. The whole point of the European union is to counterbalance the United States, and half the point of Kyoto is to put an economic anchor on the United States.

    President Nicolas Sarzosky's first Presidential act will be to tell off Ricky Bobby at the next NASCAR event...

    The only reason I even clicked this thread was to find out if it was a joke or not. Sadly, it wasn't.

    If by "progressive", you mean a social structure that has pretty much gone down the toilet to the point where it is being over-run by Muslim fundamentalists, then I'll agree with you.

    For his own well being, the new French Prez best do something about the Muslim fundamentalists. They don't take kindly to "alternative" life styles...

    Did anyone else find the candidate that lost this election attractive? I was kind of hoping she would win just so we could see more of her!
