Patrick Devedjian must feel like a prisoner on his way to execution. Xavier Bertrand and Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet were previously dispatched to flank him en route to the stake, but they couldn't silence him. Now another Sarko loyalist, Christian Estrosi, has been added to the squad. But Bertrand and NKM wore kid gloves. Estrosi is a tough guy. But Devedjian, who brawled with extreme-right-wing groups in his youth, probably holds a few sharp jabs in reserve. The fight should be interesting.
