I love following the Euro debt crisis, because with all due respect to Brangelina, the most interesting couple on Earth is these two, German chancellor Angela Merkel and French president Nicolas Sarkozy. How great is this pairing? They couldn’t look more like a German woman and a French man if they were cartoons in a Tintin book.
It’s up to these two to hold Europe together, and they’re not getting any help at all. The leader of the next biggest country in the Eurozone is Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, who is going on trial for having sex with hookers. So basically, Berlusconi’s best economic plan is “the money’s on the dresser”.
