Lang: "Party of Losers"

Jack Lang says that "the PS has become a party of losers, which is the worst image a party can have." But Lang's criticism is mild compared to Jean-Luc Mélenchon's: "I've been galvanized by the sight of the wretched shithole that was [the PS Summer University at La Rochelle]. I want no part of that pack of turncoats" (sarabande de girouettes--maybe somebody can come up with a better translation).

François Hollande assures Le Monde's readers today that things have calmed down at rue Solférino, but apparently the word hasn't gotten out to either the left wing of the party or the Socialistes de l'ouverture.

What about “I want no part of that pack which goes whichever way the wind is blowing.”
