Rachida Dati or Another Reason To Love The French

Just trying to keep up with the shenanigans at the Elysee Palace is exhausting.
Thankfully, we now have the new tell all book about femme fatale first lady Carla Bruni.
According to "Carla and the Ambitious" by Michael Darman and Yves Derai, Rachida Dati, former Justice Minister, was also competing for President Sarkozy's attentions.
Miss Dati was fired from President Nicolas Sarkozy’s government last year because of her inability to do her job properly, and her frivolous nature.

She frequently appeared on the cover of magazines in designer dresses and stirred up speculation about the mystery father of her baby daughter to the extent that some still think it might be Mr Sarkozy himself.
Miss Dati was a love rival of Mr Sarkozy’s third wife, Carla Bruni, for many months as both battled for a place in the Elysee Palace bed chamber.
And now, according to this article in the Daily Mail
Glamorous French politician Rachida Dati has been forced to issue a public apology after confusing oral sex with inflation.
The 44-year-old former justice minister and MEP is frequently nicknamed ‘Rachida Barbie’ because of her poor understanding of complicated political issues.
But nobody expected her extraordinary mistake on the national Europe 1 radio station on Sunday.
Seriously, how do you apologize for something like this
say, 'ooops, my bad'?
Can you imagine Janet Napolitano, Kathleen Sibelius or Hilda Solis making a Freudian slip like this?
I think not.
