Just Say Non!

French voters have rejected the EU constitution.

Even though many of those who lobbied against it did so because they wanted even more socialism, and others lobbied against it due to their own racist and/or elitist tendencies (they don’t want to be in a league with Turkey), it is good news for the United States. And, even though Tony Blair wanted it, this development may be good news for him too. Now he’s off the hook on holding a ratification election (which may have resulted in defeat, which would have further impaired him).

Happily, Jacque Chirac now finds himself in a world of hurt. It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
