French leftists move to the right

Several French intellectuals who identified with the left-wing before are beginning to move to the right-wing now. From the Washington Post (via Purple Avenger):
PARIS -- One by one, several French writers and intellectuals are making the startling confessions. After decades as committed leftists, they are defecting to the right _ many saying they've lost faith in Socialist presidential candidate Segolene Royal.

With just 10 weeks to go until the election's first round, Royal still has no platform. She has made gaffes on international affairs, and her popularity with intellectuals and ordinary voters alike has slipped, leaving conservative candidate Nicolas Sarkozy at the top of the polls.
Did the carbeques serve as a wakeup call for them? It's very good that now, they're starting to realize that Royal is simply not fit for the job.

Sarkozy on the other hand made an excellent move by offering support for Charlie Hebdo in the lawsuit filed against them for publishing the Mohammed cartoons last year (via The Jawa Report). He's got a good point, that satire is something the French are good at, and should continue with their talent.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
