They have discovered hope in – of all places – France! Yes, the nation at the very center of what they disdained as “old” Europe, the country that has been Bush’s bete noire ever since he went looking for WMD in Baghdad. The very same culture whose potatoes had to be renamed Freedom Fries so patriotic Congressmen wouldn’t have to utter the dreaded “F” word when ordering lunch in the Capitol mess hall.
