Slip of the Tongue

Not that anybody could out-slip of the tongue president w. bush, but right-wing French presidential hopeful Nicolas Sarkozy took a pretty good shot at it during his recent visit to Prime Minister Tony Blair in London.

"European socialists can be proud of what one of our own has done," said the decidedly non-socialist Sarkozy in London, before quickly changing the formulation to "one of theirs."

Perhaps Sarkozy is searching for a new identity. After Blair's full embrace of "w," nothing would surprise me anymore!

Oddly, the "slip-up" was included in this morning's article on BBC news, but is no longer part of this evening's updated version. Perhaps the same handlers that gave Sarkozy his great photo op with Blair got to the news article too...
