Today's Quote

"Elections are won by men and women chiefly because most people vote against somebody rather than for somebody."  (Franklin P. Adams 1944)

Today's Facts

You need 500 mayors' signatures to be able to run for president in France.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who loves orgies and violent sex, could easily have been France's new president.

The age limit for theoretically becoming the president of France is now 18!

Today's Joke

The French try to keep election results secret until the end. Special 'coded' Tweets included:

   - Netherlands-Hungary qualify for return leg
   - Dutch cheese at 27 euros, Tokai wine at 25 euros
   - high-heeled shoes are going out of fashion

* Code for Fran├žois Hollande - Netherlands / Dutch cheese
* Code for Nicolas Sarkozy - Hungary / Tokai wine / high-heeled shoes

That's all for today!
