I Love France

From Berlin's Brandenburg Gate to the small town of Obama, Japan, the world gears up to celebrate a fresh start for America.

In Germany, where more than 200,000 flocked to see Obama this summer as he moved to burnish his foreign policy credentials during a trip to the Middle East and Europe, the election dominated television ticker crawls, newspaper headlines and Web sites.
Hundreds of thousands prepared to party through the night to watch the outcome of an election having an impact far beyond America's shores.
Among the more irreverent festivities planned in Paris: a "Goodbye George" party to bid farewell to Bush.
"Like many French people, I would like Obama to win because it would really be a sign of change," said Vanessa Doubine, shopping Tuesday on the Champs-Elysees. "I deeply hope for America's image that it will be Obama." AP.

Boy&Howdy.... I really hope this ends America's bout of French-Phobia...... Freedom Fries never did taste as good as French Fries.
The French really do like Americans................ I think they just had a bit of an aversion to Asshole-American Presidents.
Whew, hopefully we won't have one again! And I think Paris would be a much better spot for a party than Beautiful Downtown Wisconsin.... but I will do my best!

"Record number of voters expected to deluge polls"*

I hope all the young kids get out and vote, too. It is never too early to develop good habits!

* I just hope the wingnut branch of the Repub's don't deluge their pants

Oh, those French. I lived in France when Reagan was president. I was ready to have "don't blame me, I didn't vote for Reagan" tattooed on my forehead, I got so sick of being asked to answer for him.

I once flew through France and told a fellow American colleague she was acting like a jerk to the French airport workers. Does that count as loving the French?

Libs.... I wish I had the stamina to get a good hangover! Usually after four beers I am ready to take off my shoes and get cozy... that is why I spread my beer indulgence through many days.

Dcup.... Ya, I am so ready to hear the last of the Lame 'French' jokes. they never were funny anyways.

BE...WE WON...I hope you found a Lienies!

See, Jo.... you got all worried for nothing.... now fix your phone!

Spartz, my friend, it is always acceptable to tell a jerk to shut up. I think that is what America told McPalin yesterday.
