Yesterday certainly was a slow news day here: "New President of France is Sworn In" along with a fairly large picture of Hollande greeting a crowd was the center story (not quite a major headline. There wasn't one) on the front page of today's Philadelphia Inquirer.

They do actually know there is a new French President out there ? Wow, surprising. Wink

Oh, I almost forgot, but this makes Hollande the co-prince of Andorra now, too!

Wait, what? Isn't he a Socialist (specifically a member of the French Socialist Party)? Does that mean that there's a socialist monarch in the world right now?

If you've heard what I have about some of the positions of European Monarchs... there are more than you'd realise.

Isn't Prince Charles a Greenie or something?

Sarko's father was jewish but converted to catholicism to marry his mother. Also, I seem to recall Sarko being mainly raised by his maternal grandfather, but I'm sure our French posters know more about that.

Well, the period where it has been sufficient to simply be against Sarkozy and whatever he proposes has come to an end. Now it's time to deliver.

I guess the French Socialist Party should officially thank the New York State Police for avoiding this happening right now:

Sarko's father's family was protestant (Hungarian protestant), but there was strong element of catholism in that family. Also his mother's family was catholic.

Right, I checked it on wikipedia and it was the maternal grandfather who started out as a Jew and later converted to catholicism.

Quote
Sarkozy is the son of Pál István Ernő Sárközy de Nagy-Bócsa[6] (Hungarian: nagybócsai Sárközy Pál [nɒɟ͡ʝboːt͡ʃɒi ʃaːrkřzi paːl] ( listen); in some sources Nagy-Bócsay Sárközy Pál István Ernő),[7] a Hungarian aristocrat, and Andrée Jeanne "Dadu" Mallah (b. Paris, 12 October 1925), whose Greek Jewish father converted to Catholicism to marry her French Catholic mother.[8][9] They were married in the Saint-François-de-Sales church, 17th arrondissement of Paris, on 8 February 1950 and divorced in 1959.[10]

The fun thing is that Sarko and his buddies have probably spent much more time criticizing Hollande's proposals than the opposite.

Of course, Hollande has spent a lot of time criticizing Sarko's record. But, barring a few cases, nobody has given a sh*t of Sarko's proposals.

By the way, it's interesting that Sarko showed far more class while welcoming Hollande to the Elysee than Giscard did, while welcoming Mitterrand in 1981.

Well, at least I can console myself saying he won't be much worse than Sarko.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Fabius was, too.

But we must keep in mind that in France religion doesn't nearly mean what it means in the USA.

Blum's background was (disgustingly) not exactly a non-issue...
