EDW: Carla Bruni

A poll this week shows the French are starting to warm to their first lady, with 90 per cent approving of her performance.

And, as this clip shows, even if she can't sing, she certainly knows how to perform. However, rather than worrying about what she wore to meet the queen, and whether or not she can behave herself in the company of Prince Philip, I'd like to suggest that this performance - a song by Georges Brassens and about soliders standing proudly to attention - indicates clearly that she has all the qualities needed to be a first lady. Ideally, they'd take the hint at the end to make it the national anthem.

Altogether now:

Quand je pense à Fernande
Je bande, je bande
Quand j' pense à Felicie
Je bande aussi...

Hmmm, I really not sure about her. Or her daddy complex.

I suppose it's rather novel highlighting La Bruni as being elegantly dressed, when from the tabloids anyway you'd assume she'd only appear on nearly naked Thursdays.

Funny too how her avowed love of polygamy and colourful sexual history attracts no negative comment, whereas if she was sink estate trash it would be immediately cited as evidence that she was a walking Richard Littlejohn column aka the excruciating Karen Matthews. I suppose the distinctions are (i) La Bruni is easy on the eye, (ii) she seems to have a better understanding of contraception, and (iii) her method of living off the state has been a lot more successful than Ms Matthews', who was forced to resort it would seem to fake kidnapping as she was jealous of the cash she perceived Kate McCann as raking in (which, one trusts, remains unique amongst the many opinions people have formed of the McCanns ...)
