First, anything that gets the noses of lefty college students so far out of joint that they go rioting and get pepper gassed and billyclubbed is automatically going to warm the cockles of my heart. I know, I know: Non Aggression Principle, civil rights, et cetera... But if watching a live action Punch & Judy show featuring some stringy-haired 23-year old Che tee-shirt-wearing college student getting a hickory shampoo vigorous enough to dislodge his iPod ear buttons doesn't bring a smile to your face, I don't know what will. Call it a guilty pleasure of mine, like sitting up late and eating a pint of Ben & Jerry's Vermonty Python while watching the volleyball scene from Top Gun in the dark.
Second, the guy's as popular in France's Muslim ghettos as a bag of pork rinds, which rates another thumbs up in my book. If non-assimilating misogynist welfare leeches hate him, he can't be all bad.
He wants to tighten up France's immigration laws, isn't the biggest fan of the EU, and wants economic reforms for the country, which all seem good. But mostly he makes socialists riot, which is reason enough alone to make me like the guy.
