Can't Help Chortling

First Schröder gets his hat handed to him, then the dhimmis of Chiraqistan gave a giant national raspberry to Giscard d'Estaing's horrid European Constitution.

The text is a monstrosity, and a united French-dominated, anti-American Europe we can do without.

With that, and a general distaste for Chirac and all his works, one must chortle.

Even if the impulse behind the "non" was a fear of cheap East European labor and a mythical European Union "liberalism" (free market variety, that is), this electoral nose-thumbing at the arrogant Parisian élite is fun to watch.

We can worry later about the protectionist tide that seems to be rising, the world over, some other time.
