Who Was That Crimson Minx?
On July 14th, the French celebrate Bastille Day. This national holiday is held every year to commemorate the time when, in 1789, a howling mob demonstrated their LIBERTÉ, ÉQUALITÉ and FRATERNITÉ by STORMING THE BASTILLE and setting free a small handful of pervs. While this affair did little to move France towards being a free Republic (Napoleon was a kind of a step backwards) it forever cemented France’s love of having convicted sexual criminals walk freely amongst innocent citizens. Congratulations on your freedom, Mr. Polanski.
This year, the Sarkozys invited the presidents and first ladies of France’s former African colonies to take part in the festivities. Obviously, there is no better way to celebrate the spirit of LIBERTÉ then to invite a bunch of military dictators over for tea. If there was one good thing to come out of this Sarkozy sideshow, however, it was watching Carla’s overweening displays of unfettered self-love pale next to a more dashing first lady. If anyone can overshadow Carla, it’s Chantal Biya, Cameroon’s big orange answer to France’s walking pin cushion for botox needles. It’s hard to stand out in this crowd, these first ladies aren’t exactly wall flowers, but somehow Biya has managed to throw them all down. Even the one who is clearly wearing a basket. Carla clearly tried to fight back a little by having her gnome-like monkey-husband pay suppliant to her waxy beauty in public, but can you even see her with Cameroon’s russet siren caught in the frame?
