It's Non! (Oui!)

Is George W's freedom wave going to sweep through Europe, too? Showing there's life in the French yet, no thanks to Mssrs. Chirac and Mitterand, they resoundingly defeated the EU Constitution (55%-45%). They just fear honest competition will lengthen their 6 week work year, you say? Now, now. A blow against post-Christian elitism is still a good thing.
In a democratic process, the French "non" would scuttle the whole Constitution, but the Rotating President has already insisted the other countries must vote anyway and Mark Steyn predicts the elites will have their Constitution, no matter what. We shall see, but for tonight you have permission to drink French wine just for once.
And elections in Lebanon! Another debacle, Al Franken?
