by Damozel | I think she has. Yes, I think she has.
Look at this: MoDo's account of Obama's meeting with Sarkozy, entitled Stalking, Sniffing, Swooning. Read all the way through it if you can. You may first wish to take an anti-emetic. It's more than a moderate dose of Dowd.
Sarkozy---excuse me, 'Sarko'---has a crush on Obama?
Whiskey Fire has a funny piece that I nevertheless think misses the reason why MoDo's piece is so creepy-ooky.
In MoDo's world, Obama, a Dem, is sexually suspect.... And so his encounter with French president Sarkozy, that wingnut twat, was not a meeting between a world leader and a presumptive world leader designed to make up for five years of Freedom Toast, but a cinq à sept, a liaison in the afternoon, languorous and stolen.
I disagree. I think she's just projecting.
It could have been a French movie.
Passing acquaintances collide in a moment of transcendent passion. They look at each other shyly and touch tenderly during their Paris cinq à sept, exchange some existential thoughts under exquisite chandeliers, and — tant pis — go their separate ways (MoDo).
The creepiness referred to is in her tone of presumptuous, yet vaguely contemptuous intimacy...curling her upper lip while 'provocatively' 'teasing' him with questions like this one:
“You must want a cigarette after that,” I teased the candidate after the amorous joint press conference, as he flew from Paris to London for the finale of his grand tour.
“I think we could work well together,” he said of Sarko, smiling broadly. (MoDo)
He smiled! He smiled broadly! At a risky, risque joke made by MoDo about apres-sex conventions!
Could it be...he likes her likes her? If he let her tease him? Smiled 'broadly'? Got the joke?
Man, that takes me back....to 10th grade and Lancaster High School, when I had a crush on Billy Knight, who was so naturally courteous that he couldn't bear to let me see that he didn't want to know.
