Egyptian Lawmakers Outraged by Sarkozy Visit December 28, 2007

Policy differences, you might think. Perhaps they don’t like his pro-American stance.

Nope. They don’t like the fact that he slept with his girlfriend. Here’s Sarkozy with his “official prostitute”:



Fer cryin’ out loud. Why does anybody still pay attention to the staged outrage of backwards Islamic dumbshits? It’s like a bunch of these Muslims have graduated from the Al Sharpton College of Media Relations™.

CAIRO, Egypt — Three Egyptian lawmakers criticized the visit of French President Nicolas Sarkozy in parliament saying it was improper that his girlfriend shared a room with him, the local press reported Friday.

Independent deputy Gamal Zahran said in parliament Thursday that it was improper for Sarkozy and his new companion, supermodel-turned-singer Carla Bruni, to stay in the same room during their visit to the southern city of Luxor, reported the independent dailies al-Dustour and al-Badeel.

He criticized the Egyptian government for setting a bad example by welcoming them.

“The regime gave the wrong message from the country of al-Azhar to all other countries that we are ready to accept official prostitution by heads of state,” he said, referring to Egypt’s premier institution of Sunni Islamic learning.

Even better is their trying to copyright the Pyramids! 😀

John, I saw that story and I can’t even describe how stupid that copyright legislation is. Start with (1) retroactivity, (2) a ridiculous claim to extraterritorial enforceability, (3) first assertion after a few millenia, and (4) assumed title to the copyright even if it existed.

If Egypt is having trouble raising money to maintain their monuments, and wants a foreign contribution, the way to do it is to impose additional taxes on the gazillions of dollars Egypt gets from the tourist trade. A hotel tax, maybe. But, of course, that would mean they might incent a few tourists to go to Machu Picchu instead.

I’d hit it. I’d definitely hit it in a hotel room at the Luxor. Or did I misread the story?

See, Sarkozy’s cultural misstep was that it wasn’t a pre-pubescent boy, or possibly a camel.

Sarko brings his girlfriend along on a state visit to Egypt?

That was smart. Real smart. Guy’s a born diplomat.

You guys crack me up.

I’ll give Sarko this:

He doesn’t seem to care what people think.

Speaking of the French: If anyone wonders why we think the French are gay (no offense, John), I offer you Two Frenchmen and The Show Must Go On. I can hardly make out what they’re saying. (Of course, I just listened to a few renditions in proper English.) So…fey.

9. Muslihoon - December 29, 2007

Both men are straight, BTW. Or supposed to be.

What the hell did i just watch? The Show Must Go On is a Queen song right? They had some alright songs but man was Freddy Mercury Gay.

FWIW i still refuse to believe that Raymond Burr was gay. I just dont want to believe it.

What you get when you mix opera, Turkish music, and dance: Sertab Erener’s The Queen of the Night Aria. (For something awesomely Turkish, check out her Zor Kadın (I think it means “Cruel Woman”).)

Sertab is Turkish. I think we can see why Turkey must remain free and Western. They must retain their right to bare arms.
