Ah…the French…

Here is a snippet from an email I received today. My friend John has been living in Paris for the past several years. His comment provides a window into the, ahem, Brilliance of French Politicians, you know, the ones democrats keep saying we should be paying more attention to…

The big issue locally now is probably the European Constitution, which will be sent to a plebiscite on May 29. The Constitution is a major cornerstone of Chirac’s foreign policy, and to the shock of the Clever People Who Think They Speak For the People, it actually seems to be losing in the polls. Chirac took the unprecedented move of attending an unscripted press conference with some 80 high school and college students who, according to the Paris press, had him for lunch. Interesting times lie ahead, and I’m not sorry I’m leaving about then.
