Since the retirement of George W. Bush the "honor" of being the biggest jerk among the World's leaders has been available for anyone to claim. Apparently, a strong challenge for the position has been made by France's President, Nicolas Sarkozy (who flunked the 6th grade and washed out of graduate school in political science). Over lunch on Wednesday, he said that US President Obama (former chief editor of Harvard Law Review and professor of Law at the U. of Chicago) was "not always up to the standard on decision-making or efficiency" Spanish Prime Minister Zapatero (a law graduate) was "perhaps not very intelligent" and German Chancellor Angela Merkel (a former Physics professor) "Had no choice but to come around to my position."

Gee, this sounds a lot like the kind of dismissive BS Bush and Cheney would say about people who they felt intellectually threatened by. Obviously, France would never elect a jerk exactly like Bush but Sarkozy is like the French version. An aristocrat who does well at politics but has never really proven himself in academic pursuits. A man who seems to "know what he knows" and have little interest in learning more from others.
It's so nice to not have Bush. Poor France though. Hopefully, the Socialists there will get their act together and defeat Sarkozy.
