Interesting thread given that last year Sarkozy was applauded for "not drinking the kool aid" after Obama's trip to Europe.

So which is it?
And why don't Republicans remember "freedom fries" and O'Reilly's call to boycott anything French? Or all the snarky comments about John Kerry "looking French"?

But perhaps the surest indication that the looming political season will be ugly has come from repeated Republican suggestions that Kerry "looks French."
Not only that: the senator is said to betray a dubious fondness for things French, even the language. A recent comment from Commerce Secretary Don Evans that the Massachusetts Democrat is "of a different political stripe and looks French" was only the latest of several jibes, mainly from conservative talk-show hosts and columnists, that have included allusions to "Monsieur Kerry" and "Jean Chéri."
For some months now, the Republican House majority leader, Tom DeLay, has been opening speeches to supporters with an occasional routine. He says hi, then adds: "Or, as John Kerry might say, 'Bonjour.'"
The remark "always brings the house down," said DeLay's spokesman, Stuart Roy, who added that its purpose was to highlight "Mr. Kerry's lack of support for the war on terror and the way he seems to be in agreement with the arguments of the French."
