    Not really a spanking for the left tho' as Malanchon, who is a left wing nutter & was part of the Socialists, got 19%. So it was more a spanking for anyone with a party. Been a big clean out of the ol;d school corupt guys - Sarko didn't even get a run, Fillion shit on etc.

    I quite like their way of doing it, you get to vote crazy 1st up - eg 20% go Alt Right, 25% go hard left. Then once you've got that out of your system you vote sane in the final. Usually.

    Euro just went thru the roof on the result.

    The level of Russian interference against Macron will be huge in the next 2 weeks. It was already big, but now it'll be off the charts.

    How many countries do you think a guy who married to his former high school teacher who is 24 year older than him could run for president?

    Imagine what the uk or us press would do with that?

    Yeah, I really like the French attitude to sex & politics, the idea that polititians who have power & charisma wont put it in some odd places is just stupid so they are totally relaxed with it. Mitterand pretty openly fucked half of France. Didn't affect his ability to govern at all. Same with Bill Clinton. I'm more worried by a guy with power & charisma who doesn't occasionally fuck a secretary. Mike Pence creeps me out no end.



  • @gollum Mike Pence calls his wife " mother".

    I don't know how to upload a vomiting gif to my phone.



  • @jegga

    And refuses to drink at any event his wife is not at. And will not have dinner with any woman alone.

    I would not even raise an eyebrow if it came out he & his wife had 4 chained mexican women in a cellar at home & Mike did them every Tuesday while wearing a shock collar controlled by his wife/mum

    Im quoting that because you put far too much thought into that and it'll probably be used as evidence someday . Did you type it wearing the skin of you last victim? Type y or n please, we don't need details.

    American politics is nothing but Republican familiy values guys (usually from Alabama or one of the Carolinas) being, at best, bummed by a rent boy, from there is gets worse. The more "pro family values" they are, the higher the chance of something very non-vanilla lurking in the closet. Pence is so tightly wound I was actually scaling it back a bit

    The French is just "I drove my scotter to the marriot & fucked a passing supermodel, c'est bon" & everyone shrugs & goes "can't argue with that"



  • @gollum yeah I remember one of the French presidents dying and his wife and mistress both turning up to the funeral like it was the most natural thing in the world. The Italians put them to shame , Netflix has a doco about Berlosconi I probably won't bother watching , they also elected Cicciolona to parliament ffs.



  • @jegga Hmm Berlesconi



  • @Catogrande

    FOUR time elected Italian PM.

    Alas, he was shit, but it had nothing to do with his repeatedly humping anything that moved or occasionally crossing the line into "she seems a bit young. And trafficked"



  • Yeah no one here gives a shit about his wife, they don't see it as much different then a fellah with a younger model really. It wouldn't be my choice but

    Fillion did bloody well considering he is currently up on charges for paying half his family public money to do bugger all. That being said Le Pen is under investigation for using European funds for her campaign and also for inciting some racist stuff, hard to keep up with exactly what with her. Didn't hurt her too much. There is a list kicking round twitter of russian twitter accounts that were all experts in US politics that have suddenly all become experts in French politics.

    What is interesting is that Macron has done in 1 year what it has taken the FN 40 years to do. As of last night Melanchon was not conceding either, though not checked yet today if he has finally got the old abacus out and realised he got beat.

    I think we have 1 debate now and 2 weeks till the second round. All the other candidates except Melanchon have urged their parties to support Macron. The funny thing here is we now have an investment banker and a lawyer from the richest suburb in all of France battling it out to see who can seem the most working class.

    Vive le 5'ième république!

  • Given that there is a historic opportunity to elect the country's first female president, I'm sure the feminists will be strongly behind Le Pen. Or not.

    I think she'd be fine from a feminist point of view wouldn't she? And a lot do genuinely sem to be backing her.

    Its only in the states being hard right means you also hate women. Her father thought women were for breeding & cooking but shes "normal". Theres no banning abortion, pulling all funding for smear tests ec that the right in the US runs on.

    Same deal with Theresa May, you can run right & not try take away basic female rights, in the US they just choose not to.

    Well that is some grade 'A' bullshit straight from the far left wing activist handbook.
