Hillary Equals France ?

New rule: conservatives have to stop rolling their eyes every time they hear the word France. Like just calling something French is the ultimate argument winner. "Aw, you want a health-care system that covers everybody and costs half as much? You mean like they have in France? What's there to say about a country that was too stupid to get on board with our wonderfully conceived and brilliantly executed war in Iraq?"

---Bill Maher in Newsweek International's
Hillary Equals France

You need to read the whole thing. It's a wonderful screed by the comedian behind Comedy Central's Politically Incorrect.

David, I'm tagging you for eight random things. Ignore it if you've already done it.

David, the Maher piece is good. He may not want to be French, but since Katrina, those of us in south Louisiana joke about asking the French to please, please, please buy us back. Maybe they'd fix our levees.
