In 1970 Dustin Hoffman played the main part of "Little big man"
Americans don't know how lucky they are cos' here in France we have little little man as president...
The gang leader in the Élysée palace has decided that his son (23) will soon preside over the EPAD, a gigantic bureaucratic body in charge of La Défense area, which goal and ambition are to compete with the City of London.
This gives you a notion of the money involved.
Now, the president's son, aged 23, hasn't even completed his studies in law at la Sorbonne, in fact he's doubling his second year and he has the nerve to declare he's fit for the job because he knows all the issues.
Of course mum is the word on the French MSM, TVs or radios alike, and the only way to get some information about this blatant act of nepotism is to look into newspapers and the blogosphere.
As you can expect, all the sycophants in the caïd's party are publicly bowing in front of daddy and sonny, although it is well known that privately many teeth are really grinding. Particularly those of the guys who've been around for 20, 30 years, when daddy's son wasn't even born.
Are there any limits to indecency? No, there aren't when one is a gang leader, mafia style.
Save for Italy and maybe Greece or Bulgaria, no other country in Europe has such a bunch of corrupt and rotten politicians.
Make no mistake here. The situation isn't any better on the left side.
For what I know, Americans don't have much respect for their politicians but it can't be worse than here in France.
