Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite

France just elected a Socialist.

Clearly this is good news for John McCain Mitt Romney.

Actually, Mittens spent Vietnam in France trying to convert people to what evangelical voters call a cult.  So maybe discussions of France aren't in Mitt's interest.

Of course, it's a matter of days before someone points out that France has nuclear weapons and is a Socialist country.  Expect some bellicose rhetoric from the Right in America.  (It's started already.)  Of course, a fire last month at the white flag factory destroyed France's military capacity, so it should be a cakewalks when President Romney invades Normandy again.

What this means is that Austerity Sucks.  Austerity has always sucked, but now we will see governments in Europe (Right and Left) fall because of the said sucking of austerity.

Viva la revolucion!
