The Morning News: Pony Up II
I am dismayed to read once more today that the new president of France, Nicolas Sarkozy, made his macho bones by posing as the proverbial "man on a white horse" during the election.
I have nothing against Mr. Sarkozy. I do object to clueless reporters repeating the "man on the white horse" theme. Sarkozy is shown "looking every bit a Texan," one big newspaper mysteriously reported.
Please: Mr. Sarkozy (above) is riding a pony, not a horse.
Pony, pony, pony!
Napoleon (middle) -- who I do have plenty against, being the murderous warmonger that he was -- is on a white horse, obviously a stallion.
Top: George Bush and some Texans. Mr. Bush, as we know, cannot ride a horse.
Just for the record.
