Don't Let Me Stop You

What the heck, you'll do what you want anyway.

Dominique de Villepin

Posted by Dan Draney on November 9, 2005

Could it be that this sounds less stupid in French?

“‘We must be lucid: The Republic is at a moment of truth,’ Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin told parliament. ‘The effectiveness of our integration model is in question.'”

No. Especially when you follow it up with this:

“He said France must fight the discrimination that is driving the frustration of youths, who feel they aren’t really considered French despite having been born here.”

He then said, “Jacques, I’d like to buy a clue.” There is a hell of a lot more in question and at stake than France’s non-existent “integration model.”
