Carla Sarkozy — International Babe

Posted by Ryan on March 28, 2008

We all love Nicholas Sarkozy for single-handedly making it OK to like the French again, and giving the Republicans here in America a model to win in November.  But, we didn’t know much about his wife Carla until her recent trip to the UK this week.

Carla Sarkozy, formerly Carla Bruni (supermodel, poet, musician, actress, trysty lover of Mick Jagger et al), is taking the upper crust Euro political scene by storm.  She’s glitzy, beautiful, chic, with a French accent the British media is just lapping up, making her an absolute craze across the pond! 

Of course, she’s not the typical model for a major country’s First Lady, hence the paparazzi-like obsession of the media.  Plus, the coupling of she and Sarko might seem a bit awkward to some: he the articulate go-getter, she the fashionista/ditz.  Yet, the “New Diana” or the New “John and Jackie”?  I don’t know about that, but aesthetically, as First Ladies go, she reminds us of slightly aged eye-candy you still don’t need wine to appreciate.

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!
