Tidbits And Cat Treats: Comment Dit-On "Whew!" En Francais?

By Zamboni

Break out the Champagne: Not only did Emmanuel Macron defeat the ultra-right Nazi Marine Le Pen, he beat the litter-box leavings out of her, 65-35. We cats are thrilled. Here are a few of our thoughts.

Looks like Le Pen had the support of the strongmen oops, the leaders of two of the world's three biggest powers, and she still managed to get crushed. China must be congratulating itself for staying out of it.

And yes, we think it's neat that Macron is only 39, and his wife is 25 years older than he is. What will she and Melania talk about? Brigitte is a literature professor — your guess.

If France's rejection of Trumpism holds in next month's National Assembly elections — and if Germany's election this fall continues the anti-Trumpism tide — there's no doubt: Britain will be further isolated and left behind. (Add to that the fact that it's probably breaking apart. Charles will inherit a much smaller and sadder United Kingdom.)

We know which language Justin Trudeau will use when he calls Macron to congratulate him. We're not so sure about Trump, though, since what he usually speaks cannot reasonably be called English.

Screw you, Julian Assange.

Finally: You know, if Barack Obama were as mentally ill and as seriously personality-disordered as Donald Trump, he'd be beating his chest and claiming victory today, screaming, "I did it! I did it!" But then, he's not, is he? Oh, how we miss him. We cats PURR.
