Sopranos Finale

Brilliant. I don’t think it was open-ended. It ended with Tony’s perspective.

Sarko Keeps Winning!

Posted by Ryan on June 10, 2007

Simple lesson for conservatives and Republicans in America:  watch Sarkozy!  According to the polls in France, Sarko’s UMP party is on the verge of taking nearly half of France’s parliament in today’s elections.  The run-offs for those candidates who did not get a majority is next Sunday.  This projected result would break with precedent that leftist and rightist party control of the parliament alternates, but the rightists are in position to maintain control… even with the their party as the incumbant!

Why?  Sarko was in the incumbant party and pulled off a win with demonstrable coat-tails by looking for faster, more decisive action all while staying conservative, creating a major distinction between his worldview and that which the Socialists would create for France.  American conservatives and Republicans would be well served to emulate Sarko’s approach in 2008.
