Plantu’s fevered mind comes leaking out all over the place: depicting Clinton as a sub-human idiot, and for absolutely no reason, throwing in his pet peeve about Sarkozy-as-vampire. Cap it off with his lie about his symbol of French society as youthful, positive, and innocent: “I don’t know why, but I’ve got a crush on Obama”
“If the French voted in the U.S. presidential election, Barack Obama would win with flying colors. A very distinguished French Committee supporting Barack Obama brings together personalities such as Pierre Bergé, Yamina Benguigui or Olivier Duhamel, but also members of the right such as Axel Poniatowski. The charismatic Obama is a dream come true for blacks as well as whites.”If, for a moment this was true, Hillary Clinton would not have near parity with Barack Obama, and John McCain would have parity with both. This is all part of the French delusion that they have more to say about things they think they understand than anyone else – that notion that something MUST have the imprint of their blab-arati to be true. This is patently false.
In large part Americans grew well past the notion of the factional “dreams of blacks, or even whites”. Not only have the overwhelming majority not seen ourselves in that simplistic a matter, we are also something incomprehensible to the unknown writer of that blurb: we are not French. They can’t possibly believe that they can take what boils down to as the primitive dynamics of their own civic life, and imagine that the same is true everywhere else.
Who are they to say that some plastic wrapped “charismatic” figure with capped teeth is “our dream come true” as though we were some sort of zombie-proletariat population like most PS supporters prove in their actions to be.
”This is not all: among Americans living in France, the Senator from Illinois is preferred by more than 70% of Democrat supporters, who have considered the chances of Hillary’s campaign”To the simplest point: no. You DO NOT get to vote in anyone else's country. You do NOT get to stamp your feet at the foreign coverage of riots as bad PR and imagine that the US may not have an election without the approval of a intellectual class that hasn’t had anything substantive to say for four decades.
