The Sarkozy Campaign Poster Gaffe
In the Age of the Internet, you just can't get away with anything. It seems that the Sarkozy campaign purchased a background image for its campaign poster, "La France Forte," showing Sarko posed against an azure sky. But an alert viewer checked out the digital version posted by Le Figaro and discovered that the sea in the background is the Aegean. Since the whole theme of Sarkozy's campaign is to present himself as the one man tough enough to administer the dose of austerity allegedly capable of saving France from becoming Greece, the selection of this particular background is indeed unfortunate.
