Bitter Pill

President Sarkozy must have choked on his coffee this morning when he read this in the Financial Times:

In Europe, the reputation of Germany’s conservative chancellor is second to none, as the ultimate deal-maker with a central role at the heart of any agreement among the 27 members of the European Union. When she travels to Washington next month, she will be greeted by Barack Obama as the US president’s most important transatlantic partner.
But France will inevitably be a partner to this, if it comes to pass, as Sarko hinted yesterday that it will.

on the light side - I remember that at the beginning of the National identity debate, you pointed out how many French people wrote French poorly, with many spelling mistakes.
Apparently, it comes from the top.

I bet that if Obama spoke English as strangely (poorly?) as Sarkozy does French, someone would have found their final proof he's not a real American.
