Smash It Up

The Dutch showed some sense in the elections in March, where the wild clown (Wilders) lost a seat in the parliament. This past weekend my nerves were twitching again since it was time for the French elections, which boiled down to crazy right wing versus crazy banker. Say what you will about capitalism, I will personally choose it before xenophobia any day, but I wasn’t sure how the French felt about it.

The relief (or in the words of the New Yorker’s Andy Borowitz – “On Sunday, the people of France annoyingly retained their traditional right to claim intellectual superiority over Americans“). (It’s a very short satire column, just read it.)
