A Classic Statement From France

French, leftie, professor:

"I'm depressed -- I voted for the Socialists purely because the right is going to win," said Geraldine Gourbe, a 30-year-old philosophy professor, on her way out of a polling station in northern Paris.

"I voted for them to be effective, but I'd rather have voted for the Greens or the Communist Revolutionary League," she said, concerned that those parties' candidates stood less of a chance of gaining seats.

She wants to block Sarkozy's party from gaining even more seats, allowing him to turn France even further from the socialist workers' paradise that it currently is. Notice that to Ms. Gourbe, the socialists are the right-most group she could legitimately vote for.
