The French Elections: Off With King Sarko's Head
by Pepe Escobar

He posed in spectacular grandeur as the neo-imperial Liberator of Libya - only a few years after Colonel Muammar Gaddafi helped finance his 2007 election campaign with a cool US$65 million.



Profiting from a mysterious alliance between the Holy Ghost and an African chambermaid in New York, he got rid of the unstoppable challenger to his re-election, former International Monetary Fund director general and international sex fiend, Dominique Strauss-Khan.

And still, this Sunday, French voters - in a Facebook-style remix of the fall of the Bastille - are bound to yell "Off with his head".
Why? Hubris. French President Nicolas Sarkozy, aka neo-Napoleonic King Sarko, former king of bling bling, "Chouchou" to First Lady Carla Bruni, may be his own worst enemy. <1>

Article goes on with more about Sarkozy's ritzi, "bling-bling" lifestyle and his campaign contribution from Gadaffi that he will have to pay back...in a "fun read style" by Escobar at:

1. According to a couple articles I have read, it is more anti-Sarkozy than it is
anti-right. They say the right is still holding the key to the election.


Unvelievable, IMO, but that is what they say.
