Who but Sarkozy could make a diatribe on international economics so entertaining? The man is the most animated figure on the international stage: He scowls, he shrugs, he struts. Dressed in one of his skinny "Rat Pack" suits, he might be a Gallic Dean Martin.
Well, they say (falsely) that the French like Jerry Lewis, so I guess it's no surprise that they're partnered with Dean, even if the teetotaling, diminutive Sarko really doesn't bear much resemblance to the tall, boozy crooner. What was Ignatius thinking? Gotta turn in that column on deadline, probably.
