Interesting...

I heard on the radio yesterday that conservative Sarkozy won the French presidential vote. Wow! Maybe the French are finally tired of watching their country circle the bowl... how conservative IS a French conservative anyway? Probably less so than one of our good ol' boys, but its gotta be a huge improvement on the socialist jerks we usually see coming out of there...
An hour after I heard that, the next time the news rolled around on the radio, I heard that riots had erupted in France. Not surprising - Sarkozy had little patience for the muslim rioters the last go round, and they're obviously not happy with his election. Something tells me they're going to be significantly LESS happy pretty soon...
Hmmm.... a conservative French government, with the potential for positive relations with the US? Almost seems too good to be true...
Lets hope its not...

All the kids over there think they'll get shoved off the public tit, and they're pissed about it. Love it. Maybe he'll be their Thatcher.
