Monsieur le Président
Let me make one thing perfectly clear. I'm not taking sides on this No Sarkozy Day effort; I'm just a disinterested observer passing it along for your review. I'll also have you know that I almost committed an act of vandalism to post this image on my blog. That is, if you can consider removing a sticker affixed to a paid advertising panel in the subway, an ad for eyeglass frames no less, vandalism. But the sticker tore in two as I attempted to remove it. So maybe that was vandalizing the vandalism. Whatever. Thank goodness for the Internet and Google image search.
The folks who've had it up to here with President Sarkozy are trying to get 1 million people into the streets today. There are certainly plenty of dissatisfied customers; his approval ratings are only around 35 percent these days and his reactions, hemming, hawing, and shuffling about since the Socialist Party kicked the UMP's tail in the regional elections doesn't seem to be winning him any friends.
