"I knew I liked Nicolas Sarkozy, even though he is so French."

This and more from Jennifer Graham in the National Review. This is easily my favorite right-wing American anti-France article ever. Some other fine moments:

"The sedentary French — and that would be most of ‘em [...]"

"It leads me to wonder if the old jibe about teachers is really more about the French: Those who can, do. Those who can’t… are French."

"It’s far easier to sniff in disdain from one’s Louis XIV armchair than to slog 5, 10 or 20 miles in the rain."

"Le irony, eez delicious."

"They need fewer snails, more Krispy Kremes."

"Hey, Serg, maybe your wine wouldn’t be in crisis if you guys would lose the attitude regarding Americans, those millions of health-conscious consumers who can afford to buy your wine, but won’t, as long as you so energetically disdain us."

I have to stop. I can't stop laughing.
