Sarko The Cowboy

Posted by Mike on February 18, 2008

When Nicholas Sarkozy ran for the French Presidency, his socialist opponents tried to brand him as “Sarko the American.”  Unfortunately for the socialists, this political argument was about as about as effective as their economic policies and the U.S. now has a friend living at Elysee Palace.  That doesn’t make him American though.

Neither does the fact that Nicholas Sarkozy is arresting the thugs who rioted in Paris last November rather than appeasing them like Jacques Chirac would have done, but you’ve got to admit that it’s probably one of the most un-French things ever done by a French President.  Even more impressive is the reaction Sarko caused in socialist circles by his commitment to law enforcement.

Tres bien Sarko!

O’Bama’s Plagiarism

Posted by Ryan on February 18, 2008

Of course we know that O’Bama is an empty suit, full of “hope,” “audacity,” “unity,” yak yak yak.  But plagiarism?  The accusation comes from Death Eater and She Who Must Not Be Named syncophant Howard Wolfson, who believes that O’Bama’s recent Milwaukee speech sounded an awful lot like the very happy Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick’s campaign speeches from 2006!

Apparently, O’Bama used phrases like, “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal,” and “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” and “I have a dream” in a similar way that Deval Patrick did during the 2006 campaign for Massachusetts Governor, which Patrick all but admits (since the two are god buddies).   

Wolfson’s accusation simply illustrates one basic point: SWMNBN is desperate and it’s getting worse!  She’s also calling for more debates, which is the true sign of a faltering campaign.  Making a big deal about this kind of thing only hurts her in the long run: so they’re message is that anyone who is running for President can’t cite our Founders or major historical figures to illustrate a point on the campaign trail?  Good grief!
