Nicolas Sarkozy seems to be headed to a major victory Sunday when he is elected the next President of France. A conservative (and in France, that is saying something) who despises Jacky Chirac and wants to crack down on Islamic assholes, Sarkozy also wants to renew ties of friendship with...the United States! Mon dieu!
Of course, this gets the Left's panties in a bind, because they hate conservatives, and they definitely hate conservatives who want to make nice with George W. Bush's America.
Check out this hissy fit from a dunce at The Guardian, England's leftwing fishwrapper:
France heads to right as political showman delivers final performance of campaign
In a hangar in the south of France, a burst of violins and dramatic drum rolls marked the arrival on stage of France's most charismatic political showman. At his final gathering before tomorrow's presidential election, the rightwing favourite Nicolas Sarkozy stood surveying his thousands of supporters draped in French football shirts, flags, or face-paint. Some had come to witness what has been likened to a quasi-religious experience, led by a secular evangelist.
For the left, the last day of the French presidential campaign is more than ever a referendum on Mr Sarkozy's personality - a former interior minister, who has been in ruling government for years but has reinvented himself as a type of opposition leader.
"He pits people against each other, he stigmatises French people of foreign origin," said Elyane Barras, a retired administrator. "There will be riots again on the estates," said Sorraya Baiddou, a student from the suburbs.
Ms Royal was presenting as the voice of "justice" against Mr Sarkozy's "brutality". But behind the cheers there was a sense of unease and frustration about the Socialist party itself and how it had run its campaign. How, after the disaster of being knocked out by Jean-Marie Le Pen in 2002, after 12 years of Chirac, after riots that shook the housing estates, could the left lose again?
Yep - Sarkozy is a "political showman" but Royal is just a nice lady who the rag won't admit is dumber than a sack of hair. But she is a leftist, which means she cannot be made fun of.
So, it appears that the Left WILL lose again - and in France no less.
There is a God...maybe. Now if he could only strike Harry Reid and John Murtha with a bolt of lightning...
Now, check out the old leftwing playbook: when you are about to lose, as the Left will, trot out the old "violence will follow" canard.
France's Royal warns of violence if Sarkozy wins
PARIS (Reuters) - Socialist opponent Segolene Royal said on Friday that France risks violence and brutality if her opponent right-winger Nicolas Sarkozy wins Sunday's presidential election.
On the last day of official campaigning, opinion polls showed Sarkozy enjoyed a commanding lead over Royal, who accused the former interior minister of lying and polarizing France.
"Choosing Nicolas Sarkozy would be a dangerous choice," Royal told RTL radio.
"It is my responsibility today to alert people to the risk of (his) candidature with regards to the violence and brutality that would be unleashed in the country (if he won)," she said.
Pressed on whether there would be actual violence, Royal said: "I think so, I think so," referring specifically to France's volatile suburbs hit by widespread rioting in 2005.
Notice - Royal is a Socialist, but Sarkozy is a "right winger." Language, language, language...
The great part about Sarkozy is that he wants to crack down on Islamic assholes in France. Remember the riots by "Muslim youth"? Maybe President Sarkozy will shoot the little fuckers right in the streets. We would definitely cheer him on.
