France Mourns!

Yes, all of France is in mourning: Frédéric Nihous of Chasse, pêche, nature et traditions has decided to withdraw from the presidential race and has thrown his support to Sarkozy. It's a pity, because I love explaining to Americans that France has a Hunters, Fishermen, Nature and Traditions Party that actually puts up a presidential candidate. Unlike the US, which just forces its presidential candidates to pretend that they love nothing better than gutting deer and making their own shot from molten lead.

Frédéric Nihous, président de Chasse, pêche, nature et traditions, renonce à se présenter à la présidentielle et soutient Nicolas Sarkozy

Candidat en 2007, Frédéric Nihous avait recueilli 1,15 % des suffrages exprimés. CPNT, allié à l'UMP depuis 2009, avait fait liste commune avec le parti majoritaire aux élections régionales de 2010.
