While the American Embassy in Kabul was given the Benghazi treatment and bombs ripped through Baghdad killing 37 yesterday, the Media Powers that Be decided it was better to focus on the Honey Man, Eliot Spitzer’s Christmas celebration with his new(?) girlfriend Lis Smith, the now (we’re guessing) former Communications Chief for the soon to be New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, and her loving family.
Not only was he streaks (or was that strikes?) ahead of Hollande and the First Girlfriend, Nicolas Sarkozy sure did know how to woe opposing parties. Whether it was envelopes full of EUROs delivered by his right hand elf, Claude Gueant, or the over $41,000 he spent on the Obamas, Sarkozy really gave Le Père Noël a run for his international title.
The Grinch of the EU, or at least the incumbent President one, received a lovely and of course much deserved dressing down last month, by PD’s favorite and sexiest libertarian, Nigel Farage.
Nothing is guaranteed to warm the cockles of your heart and get you into the holiday spirit more than looking at what he said.
