I don’t believe there’s any truth to the headline. But I couldn’t resist the photo. See why ..


Carla Bruni’s rivalry with Michelle Obama has damaged US relations with France

French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s wife Carla Bruni’s alleged rivalry with Michelle Obama has strained relations between the French and US presidential couples.

by Our Foreign Staff

The author of “Carla: A Secret Life” - a biography chronicling her transformation from an allegedly tempestuous man-eater into an apparent model spouse - suggests Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has become something of a political liability for her husband.

Besma Lahouri says Mrs Bruni-Sarkozy’s image of distant, well-heeled perfection has kept her at arm’s length from the French people.

At a time when the conservative president’s popularity has plummeted, and he is being criticised for raising the retirement age and cracking down on Eastern European Gypsy immigrants, having a more accessible first lady might soften his image, she said.

“The French don’t know their first lady, and her worries seem to them very far removed from their own,”

Well heck, I couldn’t run this photo on it’s own. Could I?  Or maybe I could.  ? 
This new book on Carla Bruni has been written by someone who never spoke to her, but I wouldn’t be too surprised to find a bit of truth in most of it.
However .... here’s the one line in the article that induced me to post this, aside from the photo.  Which just had to be done here.

Mrs Bruni-Sarkozy’s obsessions have shifted away from rock stars to women she perceives as rivals.  Her husband’s second wife, and Mrs Obama, described in the book as “the only one in (Carla’s) eyes able to challenge her for the title of the world’s sexiest and most glamorous first lady.”

Now lets be fair guys .... Mrs O. though many may not like her, would have approved of her had she married and been herself a conservative.  I mean folks, she isn’t ugly just because some don’t approve of her. BUT .... holy cow.  If the person who wrote the book thinks that she is a challenge for a title nobody has to my knowledge been in competition for, what does that say about the book.  If Mrs.O. is All That, what does it say about whoever else may be a first lady in other countries?  Mrs. Obama, world’s sexiest? Most glamorous?  Whoa.  I for one do not think so. But that’s just me.  And a fair number here I know.

Call me silly if you must, that’s okay. But I really seriously doubt that the woman pictured above has much to worry about from Mrs. Obama in the looks dept.
In fact, she doesn’t have anything to worry about and I very much doubt that she gives it any thought.
But it sell newspapers. And books.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
