FRENCH BASHING GOING OUT OF STYLE?....Patrick Ruffini is persuaded that we should give up all the French-bashing and act like adults:

Giving up on all the hilarity of our Chirac-bashing would be a magnanimous gesture of the best kind, namely the meaningless kind, the kind that does not force us to forego the substance of our argument against Franco-German appeasement. It would show that there's only one side of the argument that's using child-like invective to make its point and it's not the United States. It would show up the editors of Liberation and Le Monde, who have yet to make a single concession to President Bush although the high-minded anti-anti-French should feel free to enlighten me otherwise on this score.

Good for him.
