Casse Toi Pauvre Con!
Yesterday at the Salon de Agriculture, where most french politicians traditionally go to meet the people and be seen fondling farm animals, President Nicolas Sarkozy paid a brief visit, surrounded by security.
In the rush through the crowd to his prearranged photo ops, he shook some hands.
One fellow, echoing more and more, the sentiments of the French populace, shrunk from the Presidents sweaty touch saying "Ah, non, touch moi pas" (Don't touch me!)
Sarkozy in his normal frenzied manic state, aggresively barked, "Casse toi, alors, pauvre con!" a very loose translation, but carrying the same vulgar aggression : Get lost you pathetic asshole!
This got captured on a cell phone video and now it has had as of 21:30 CET, over 240,000 hits on YouTube! No matter what Sarkozy thought he was going to do tomorrow, this is all that the rest of France will be talking about. That and the prices for basics in the big stores increasing almost 40% across the board....
You really get the feeling that he meant it when he said that he expected to only have one term. He seems to have an agenda of destroying social gains made under the Socialist party with what ever it takes. The richest are getting much richer and the middle class are getting...poor.
This should be good for another point or two loss in his ratings!
