France – Bus Fare for Rachida Dati

Could you imagine the uproar in the US if the next time Joe Biden sticks his foot in his mouth…

Obama would take away his perks of office?

Rachida Dati

I mean – back to riding Amtrak every day, Joe! On your own dime!

Nicolas Sarkozy, the French Prime Minister, who apparently hasn’t met a good-looking French woman of color he couldn’t appoint to a cabinet position…

At least now that he is married.

And with Rachida Dati, Rama Yade, and newly appointed Jeannette Bougrab, Sarkozy has a lock on the most attractive women of color on the “continent”.

Such charm doesn’t come without a cost apparently – as Rachida has “stepped in it” –

Ex-French minister Dati loses perks: report

Jeannette Bougrab

France’s ex-justice minister Rachida Dati has lost her chauffeur-driven limousine and bodyguards after annoying President Nicolas Sarkozy with a recent TV appearance, reports said Wednesday.

Dati, who fell out of favour with Sarkozy last year and now serves as a member of the European parliament, turned up on national television this month to comment on regional elections in which Sarkozy’s party was roundly defeated.

After spotting Dati on the screen and complaining that she had been absent from the campaign trail, Sarkozy called the head of national police and asked that she be stripped of her limousine, chauffeur and security detail, the Canard Enchaine satirical weekly reported.

Rama Yummy..errrr...Yade

Aides to Dati confirmed some aspects of the report.

“We are talking essentially about three police officers who were told to end their assignment on March 14”, the night that Dati went on television, said the official.

“It’s not clear that it was a decision taken by the president,” he said. “What is certain is that it was a decision by the interior minister.”

The interior ministry said former ministers are allowed to keep their limousines and security detail for six months after they leave the government and that Dati’s time had expired.

The 44-year-old Dati became the first French Arab woman to hold a powerful post in government when she was named justice minister in 2007 after Sarkozy’s election.

A fixture of celebrity magazines, Dati has recently been seen once again in Sarkozy’s entourage, fuelling speculation that she could return from political exile in the Strasbourg assembly.

Damn… this is a hell of a lot more fun than ugly-assed Republicans…

France – Rachida Dati Runs for Mayor of Paris

A new challenge for Rachida Dati – Mayor of Paris?

I’ll probably start in international war with this on the scale of Freedom Fries – but until recently I never conflated the words French Woman…

And hot. I guess I was too young for the Bridgette Bardot school.

Even when admiring the fairer skinned beauties. Up North, Yeah! Italy? Yeah! Paris? Hmmmmmm…

I mean Thomas Jefferson saw fit to bring Sally Hemmings.

And yeah, I’ve been to Paris, Marseilles, and Nice several times.

Then along comes their new President Sarkozy, who added …

Some tan to the situation, along with what had to have been one of the best looking Cabinets in the world – which apparently he’s already fired…

And then goes and marries quite possibly the second most attractive First Lady in the world (behind Michelle, of course). Read the rest of this entry »
