French politics are much more fun than American politics

President François Hollande of France cheated on his long time girl friend Ségolène Royal, with whom he has four children with journalist Valerie Trierweiler, but he tired of her and pretty soon after his election, there he was sneaking out of the presidential palace to cheat on her with actress Julie Gayet. My favorite part of the story is the fact that he drove to his mistress’ place on a motor scooter. So adorable! Try to imagine Obama on a motor scooter sneaking out of the White house to visit Halle Berry. Oh, and then the Secret Service had croissants delivered to her in the morning. I call that very touching. If the president of the United States decides to sneak out to visit me, I might ask for bagels. I’m okay with croissants and donuts will do in a pinch, but I would really prefer bagels. With red onions, tomatoes and lox. My friend Darlene makes this awesome breakfast involving eggs and smoked salmon. I could go for that too.

Miss Gayet has ended her relationship with the president of France because she liked having a secret relationship, (she was so excited when he sneaked out of Valerie’s bedroom and arrived on a scooter with croissants!) but now that everyone knows about it, it’s just not fun any more and that’s it, he’s getting no more nooky. Well, at least not from her.

The president is still on friendly terms with both Ségolène and Valerie which seems wise under the circumstances. All three are very good looking women proving that the president has James Bond like taste in women.

In America, our presidents could not get away with this. I’m not sure if this makes us less civilized or more.
Italy is definitely more interesting when it comes to politics though. Former Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi had these “bunga bunga” parties—I don’t even want to think about the translation of that, and he is accused of bringing in underage prostitutes. He was seventy-six. I like the fact that he would have parties where he would have hookers attending dressed as nuns. Fun nuns. Silvio is worth nine billion, so any time he is pulled up on charges, he seems to get off. I’m guessing that nine billion comes in handy.

But, there are crazier world leaders:
Saparmurat Niyazov of Turkemenistan named the days of the week after himself and his family. There a number of world leaders who are terrified of homosexuals, Putin being one of them. It just goes to show you can be as crazy as a loon and still be elected to be a global leader.

America is not without our crazy politicians.
Michele Bachman is my current favorite:
Here is what she says:

“Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn’t even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.” -Rep. Michelle Bachmann, April, 2009

“I will tell you that I had a mother last night come up to me here in Tampa, Florida, after the debate. She told me that her little daughter took that vaccine, that injection, and she suffered from mental retardation thereafter.” –Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), on the HPV vaccine, Fox News interview, Sept. 12, 2011

Oh sure, let’s weigh in on the idea that kids shouldn’t be having vaccines. The whole idea that vaccines cause autism has been debunked, but former Playmate of the Year, Jenny McCarthy suggests that parents should forgo vaccinations. She says that it might be better to just have some diseases come back. Really, if you are listening to Playboy bunnies and their advice on whether you should give your children shots you probably should get your IQ checked out.

French politicians, Playboy bunnies and Scientologists are all willing to advise you on our life, so listen up. Or think for yourself.
