Apparently its true: even French righties are lefties. French President Nicolas Sarkozy used his inaugural address today to reaffirm his commitment to human rights and Global Warming. Missing from his address were pledges to personally beat the shit out of any Muslim woman caught wearing a hijab and to aid the Bush administration if and when it decides to invade Bolivia.
Meanwhile, in Ottawa, this guy and this guy wept quietly.
(Note: And interesting that Canada.com doesn't mention these issues at all in its story on Nics inauguration)
