Carla Bruni – L'Amoureuse

At Crooks and Liars, I found this video of French President, Nicholas Sarcozy’s wife:
I found it refreshing and provocative.  I think it’s great that she can continue her career.  However, can you imagine the howls of rage and distain that would flood the halls of the House and Senate, not to mention the airwaves from the GOP Reichsministry of Propaganda, Faux Noise, had Michelle Obama made this video?

Actually Nicolas Sarkozy isn't Prime Minister of France (this post is held by François Fillon) but the president of the French Republic.

It's kind of like saying That Joe Biden is the POTUS.

Thank you Flocon. I actually knew that, but brain farted. I appreciate the help and have corrected my error. Welcome. :-)

I think it is great that she is able to continue her career. The video is a little to "arty" for me, but that's because I'm completely left brained. The only creative talent I have is cooking, but that's only because I'm too lazy to measure. :)

The Republicans' heads would explode if Michelle tried to continue her career. Remember what happened to Hillary when she got involved with HCR? They mocked her endlessly.

I meant "artsy". Duh, blonde moment.

Lisa, I used to be fully left brained as well. Ironically, it was the study of the calculus that taught me to developn the right side.

I guess we both brain farted today. :-)


Must say at the beginning, France was gobsmacked but we're getting used to the idea that our first lady is a song bird :-)

I suppose public is not too anti because Nicolas Sarkozy is doing a good job (and Carla is not being pesky.)

Not sure though if everyone in France approves of her doing the show business circuit.

One good thing is that she's donated or is still donating a huge chunk of what she makes from sale of her discs to charity.

Anna, I can believe it, but the French waited and saw. Here they you know what would have hit the fan.
