Never play poker with this man


Sarkozy has won the French presidency. What a poker face this man has. This is his “I won the election” face. I’m not sure if anyone else in politics is quite this emotionally opaque.

Does his election, along with Mario Dumont‘s popularity in Quebec, signal some kind of neo-liberal moment in la francophonie. I suppose it will take time to figure that out, but it may indicate something akin to Thatcher and Reagan 25 years ago. Or it may not.
