Fishnet stockings and 3D blogging

Babble on.

Doug at Loose Coins turned me on to a site with fishnet stockings and stiletto heels in the header. No, I'm not talking about prøn (and I apologize for the bad pun although I can't bring myself to delete it). The blog is called E-nough:

What happens when two hot-blooded women, one American and one French, both living in a socialist paradise called France, meet in the middle of a transatlantic diplomatic crisis?
Remember that they have been living in Old Europe for years, so the odds are they have a lot to say. And that they may be a little angry sometimes. But never opposed to an honest debate.

What Old Europe inanity is in their crosshairs today? Jacques "Never Mind The Beam In My Eye" Chirac gets roasted for whining about anglophone cultural splinters in the eyes of the world:

French President Jacques Chirac warned on Thursday of a "catastrophe" for global diversity if the United States' cultural hegemony goes unchallenged.
Speaking at a French cultural centre in Hanoi...Chirac said France was right to stand up for cultural and linguistic diversity.

You go to Vietnam and warn against cultural hegemony. If that's not hypocritical, I don't know what is.

Thank you ladies.

And if you need another reason to visit, they have a regular contributor named Damian who - surprise, surprise - is worth reading. That makes three of us.

Babble off.

Evisceration of French socialists, French bigotry, and the French exception are pretty standard fare there, and they're very good at all three. The Dissident Frogman does it better but far too infrequently, and No Pasaran does it more often but usually not as well. They've struck an admirable balance (and judging by the stilettoes, it's needed).
