Big O meets with French President Nicholas Sarkozy. I don't care much for him; I'm looking forward to meeting the missus. My guess is that when Lady M and Carla Bruni get into the same picture, the camera flashes are going to blind us all. That'll be fun, and it's not like Big Guy hasn't had that "deer in the headlights" look before from camera flashes; he has sensitive retinas.
This Sarkozy meeting doesn't mean very much in the scheme of things. He's already shown a willingness to play ball with Big Guy. In fact yesterday during a plenary session at the G-20 meeting, Sarkozy agreed to cut a deal with the Chinese on illegal tax havens as a favor to Big Guy.
We in return agreed to lend Sarkozy and his economics ministers TATUS, Sebelius, four Cabinet undersecretaries, Chris Dodd and Charlie Rangel for a month to teach the French how to build newer, undetectable tax havens for themselves.
