France’s President Nicolas Sarkozy Loses Election to Socialist Hollande

Exit polls are showing that French left-winger Francois Hollande has beaten Nicolas Sarkozy, delivering France the first Socialist presidential victory since 1988.

The leftist secured 51.7 percent of the vote to Mr. Sarkozy’s 48.3 percent.

Indeed, quite the milestone for the French.  Too bad it’s a milestone that will only expedite the country’s path to fiscal and economic ruin.

Way to go Frenchies.  I suppose they’re oblivious to the consequences of socialism, just like the American public was in 2008.

Moral of the story: Ignorance is not always bliss.
