Two items

First, Nicolas Sarkozy won the French presidential election. Although the French presidency is relatively weak compared to American-style presidency, French presidents are far from being nobody. I'll see how Sarko leads France, and if he starts chanting the praises of the W regime and its policies (much along the lines of Angela Merkel of Germany), maybe I should start considering my own boycott of France.

Second, Pat Buchanan is NOT grateful to the Korean immigrants (and many other immigrant demographics) who have supported his social conservatism. He uses the VT shooting tragedy to correlate immigration with mass murder (and loss of American identity). Given the special relationship that they have with the Korean community, the reactionary elements of American society are damned whether they defend the Koreans (as did Fox News), or blast them (as did Buchanan).
