Just nitpicking, but I'm not sure. After all AFAIK his father earned citizenship by serving in the Légion Étrangère, and then he left his Jewish Greek mother when Sarko was a small child. (Yes, Sarko was a momma's boy, a girlie-man who is over-compensating today. I once wrote about an anecdote told by a relative of mine who met him as child, and BTW also about his Hungarian aristocrat origins.)

Thanks for the more accurate details, Dodo. [ although I don't see what's wrong with being a mamma's boy, as long as the boy knows the reasons why he's gravitating towards her ].

So I see Sarko's dad got into French panties ... er, citizenship ... via la Légion Etrangère. Double urp.

Nothing. The problem is when he later tries to play the biggest macho :-)

Except that within a more reasonable world view, we ought not have to contend with penis size and mother-complexes when it comes to the safety of the world's population.
