La Vote En France
Sarkozy and Ségo are debating at noon, PST, on TV5, France. I get TV5 at home, but a friend in my French class last night said it's also disponible (available) on the Internet as a live simulcast. Even if your French isn't that great, because it's a debate, they're likely to be speaking slowly and sans argot (slang). Here's the TV5 link.

Mais, André-Tascha, je suis sur que ils seront très forte -- et très pleine de l'air chaud!

You would not believe how much shit I am getting for listening to the runup to the debate commentary (en francais) at work. Well, actually, considering that I work for the California Assembly Republican Caucus, I guess it makes sense...

what the hell is it with french socialists (or socialists in general I suppose) that makes them deep down believe that business is there to serve the government's fiscal whims?

okay. stupid question. never mind.

What's stupid is how the French keep electing socialists instead of running them out of the country on a rail.

Who won?

Bread and circuses, Amy, bread and circuses.

Plus, we're talking about the people who, a few years ago, protested high unemployment demanding that the government fix the problem by...RAISING THE MINIMUM WAGE. Kind of reminds me of the time I read an alt-weekly in San Francisco that suggested the way to fight housing shortages was to tighten rent control.

My bet's on Sarko, but André-Tascha saw it (or some of it); I didn't -- was out writing all day then at a Reason thingie. Have it recorded...will watch soon.
