Hail Nicolas Sarkozy, king of all media!

Sarkozy In terms of media exposure, French president Nicolas Sarkozy, in office less than a year, certainly gets around. There’s his romance with former supermodel Carla Bruni; his son’s “outing” as a hip-hop producer; his tirades against reporters; a YouTube video in which he looks tipsy; and a proposal to ban commercials from French TV and recoup the revenue by taxing the Internet and mobile phones. All I can say is: They’ve got hip-hop in France? Sacre bleu! 50 Cent would be Cinquante Cent, but he’d also be known as Ciddy. As for Sarkozy, the man who once apologized by saying “My English is very bad,” he has no trouble getting his messages across loud and clear.
