Merci Beaucoup,
M. Romney

For years, France has been a regular punching bag for Republican politicians, who mock its socialist ways and
its anti-war tendencies. But now, with its defeat of socialist candidate Ségolène Royal, things seem to be changing.

According to former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, Hillary Clinton is so liberal that even the French people wouldn't embrace her as a leader. "I don't think Hillary Clinton could get elected president of France with her platform. France is moving toward us," Romney said as he campaigned today in New Hampshire. No response yet from Clinton's Paris hq. [Later we received the following communique from Clinton spokesman Phil Singer: "Considering how often Gov. Romney flip-flops, he'll be wearing a beret and eating baguettes on the Champs-Elysees next week."]

It's too bad for Romney that he can't elected in this country.
