Le Tout à l'Ego

Pierre Moscovici may have lost his bid to become the leader of the Socialist Party, but credit him and his two collaborators with a zinger to rank with Hollande's coup d'éclat permanent: see the title of today's Le Monde op-ed: "Nicolas Sarkozy en Europe: le tout à l'ego."*

Don't even think of branding Mosco a "sewer loser" or of descending to the level of "gutter politics." On the contrary, he seems "flush" with confidence.

(*Non French-speakers may wish to consult their dictionaries under tout à l'égout.)

In other news your blog provides a remarkable outside perspective on French politics, which we in France really need... having stumbled onto it more or less by chance, I'll keep checking it out.

Mosco's hopes for a Socialist nomination have gone "down the drain..." No surprise he feels utterly "p... off ".
