I'm off to Paris! I hereby revoke every churlish remark I've ever made
about those lovely Gallic people. (But in light of former New Jersey
governor and current "gay American" Jim McGreevey's latest career
move, I redouble everything I've ever said about the Episcopalians.)
With Nicolas Sarkozy's decisive victory as the new president of
France, the French have produced their first pro-American ruler since
In celebration of France's spectacular return to Western civilization,
I bought a Herve Leger dress on Monday, and we're having croissants
for breakfast every day this week. This delicate French pastry, by the
way, is in the shape of a crescent to commemorate the Crusaders'
victory over Islam. Aren't the French just peachy?"
Sarkozy the American," as he is known in France, called Muslim rioters
"scum." Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful
He explained his position on Muslim immigrants in France, saying:
"Nobody has to, I repeat, live in France. But when you live in France,
you respect its rules. That is to say that you are not a
polygamist. ... One doesn't practice female genital mutilation on
one's daughters, one doesn't slit the throat of the sheep, and one
respects the republican rules."
Sarko never issued an apology or entered rehab. To the contrary, he
said: "I called some individuals that I refuse to call 'youth' by the
name they deserve. ... I never felt that by saying 'scum' I was being
vulgar, hypocritical or insincere."
Is there a single American politician who would speak so clearly
without then apologizing to Howard Dean?
It looks like the Democrats are going to have to drop their talking
point about Bush irritating the rest of the world - evidently not as
much as Muslim terrorists irritate the rest of the world. The
politicians who hate Bush keep being dumped by their own voters.
At the Democratic presidential debate a few weeks ago, B. Hussein
Obama carped that Bush had "alienate(d) the world community" and vowed
that he would build "the sort of alliances and trust around the world
that has been so lacking over the last six years."
Democrats are terrific at building alliances. Remember how Jimmy
Carter won the love of the world by ditching our ally the shah of
Iran, allowing him be replaced by a string of crazy ayatollahs? Since
then, we haven't heard a peep from that area of the world.
The smartest woman in the world sniped that she would "create
alliances instead of alienation."
Yes, it was spellbinding how her husband charmed North Korean dictator
Kim Il-sung and his sociopathic son, Kim Jong-il, by showering them
with visits from Jimmy Carter and gifts from love-machine Madeleine
Albright. And that was that: No more trouble from North Korea!
As I understand it, the center of the supposedly America-hating world
is France. But now it turns out even the French don't hate America as
much as liberals do.
Au contraire! (We can say that again!) Our Georgie is the most popular
American with the French since Jerry Lewis.
All over the civilized world, voters are turning terrorist-coddling
liberals out of office and voting for politicians friendly toward
Bush, the world's sworn enemy of Islamic fascism.
Those foreign leaders so admired by Democrats for hating George Bush
and loving Saddam Hussein are being replaced by rulers who pledge
their friendship to the United States. American celebrities who
threaten to move out of the country every election rather than live
under a conservative leader are running out of countries to move to.
Retrospectively, B. Hussein Obama's answer about our most important
ally being "the European Union" may eventually become true, thanks to
Bush's ceaseless ally-making.
In Germany, pro-American Angela Merkel crushed the mincing anti-
American chancellor Gerhard Schroeder in 2005.
Last year, conservatives swept Canada, making Conservative Party
leader Stephen Harper the prime minister. I haven't loved Canadians
this much since the New York Rangers won the Stanley Cup.
Australian Prime Minister John Howard is both the longest-serving
Australian prime minister and - by his own account - the most
conservative. As the New York Times rooted for his defeat in 2004,
claiming Australians were furious with him for his support of the Iraq
war, he won a historic third term.
Along with Howard, Bush's staunchest ally in the war on terrorism has
been Britain's Labor Party leader Tony Blair. He's about to leave
office - only to be replaced by a leader from the even more pro-
American Conservative Party.
Only Spain remains a nation of women. As long as Spain exists, it will
not outlive the shame of its gutless capitulation to terrorist
bombings in 2004. It is worse than Sweden's neutrality toward Hitler.
But France! Until this week, France seemed a less likely place to find
someone who supports America than a meeting of Democrats.
Apparently, even the French prefer Western civilization to
clitorectomy-performing, car-burning savages.
The Democratic Party is now officially the only organization on Earth
that does not take the threat of Islamic fascism seriously. Between
the Democrats and the media, America has gone from its usual position
as the world's last hope to radical Islam's last hope.
