So, Are You Happy?

Alors, content?
was the comment I heard from my back sometime in late 2004 and, turning, I saw it was a friend with a sly smile and giving me a wink. It took me a couple of seconds to figure out that what he was asking was if I was happy about Bush's victory in the November elections. I smiled:
Non, ce sont les Irakiens qui sont contents…
Laughing as if I would never learn, he walked away:
Oh, toi alors…
