Its guys like him that make blogging so much fun

Jeff is at it again:

It's time France admitted that Jacques Chirac has squandered the goodwill of the planet. Prior to his election, France may have been an international laughingstock, but it was good-natured ridicule, like watching a retarded person stuck in a revolving door.

Now, after 10 years of Chirac ramming his foie gras diplomacy down the world's gullet, the French are greeted with the withering contempt one reserves for the schmo at the next urinal who just pissed down your leg. Chirac's foreign policy quagmires:


Faced with this litany of foreign policy disasters, small wonder that John Howard, among others, called for kicking France off its permanent seat on the UN Security Council. Chirac now trying to pack the Council, calling for expanding permanent members to include Germany.

Imagine France kicked off the Security Council. Quelle catastrophe! That seat - awarded on the shaky thesis that France fought against Germany in WWII - is France's ONLY claim to fame. Without it, what do the French have? Fondue, haute couture, & a shitty little maple republic that even the French despise!
