France Loves Kerry: “Any Argument Kerry Makes is Right”
An amazing statement of naked partisanship from a newspaper—in France: European Press Review. (Hat tip: BPP.)
Le Figaro from Paris also praised Kerry’s suggestion, but for different reasons. It commented that moving the troops out of Europe to Iraq and elsewhere actually makes those extra 40,000 “unnecessary.” But according to the French daily, “any argument that Kerry makes is right, if it means he wins the White House.”
In all the elections I’ve witnessed, I’ve never seen anything like this logic-free endorsement of a US candidate by a foreign newspaper.
