Americans Weigh in on the French Presidential Election

I loved reading all the Yahoo news stories about the televised debate between Sarkozy and Hollande this past week. And I especially loved those stories which enable comments. It allows a whole cross-section of Americans to weigh in on the hot mess that is French politics. I love how the comments are ALL over the MAP. Some commenting on the French election, others using it to draw parallels to our own messed up political system. While there are too many good ones to list them all, I have included my top 10 below.
10. Sarkozy is a joke, but this clown Hollande will destroy France.
9. The French people are great but they have had the worst leaders in history: the Louis kings, Napoleon, Vichy France, De Gaulle, and now this latest bunch of total losers. Sacre bleu!!!
8. Most Americans can name more members of the cast of Jersey Shore than presidential candidates. We are turning into an Idiocracy.
7. The French tuck a white surrender flag in their pocket each day before leaving their home....just in case.
6. If Sarkozy thinks that Europe is over the crisis then he is living on a cloud in Cuckoo Land.
5. I hope the people of France like what is going on in Greece because if Hollande wins, they will get to experience these conditions first-hand.
4. The problem with socialism is you eventually run out of other people's money.
3. To HELL with those cheese eating surrender specialists!
2. I will not miss the midget, but I will miss his wife. The midget's wife is HOT!
1. Effe Zee Frawgs!


  1. I want to go to Paris someday, which is how I came across your fine blog from googling 'paris blogs'.
    The results are in and Mr Hollande has won by a thin enough margin he has no mandate. But I think he will help me with my France trip.
    This should tank the euro against the dollar, and improve my purchasing power in those Paris cafe's. Drinks are on the house!!

    The american electorate is none too sophisticated either.
    There's no end to the the holier-than-thou, bible-thumper candidates.
    And they all seem to love war. Torture? Not a problem.
