The Next First Lady of France?

Sherman Oaks, California

Why can’t U.S. politics be this fun?

Recently divorced French president Nicolas Sarkozy is stepping out with model and singer Carla Bruni (pictured). He is 52, and she is 39. Way to go, Nicky!

It gets better.

Bruni’s days as a model were well documented by cameras, especially the many days she forgot to wear clothes.

It gets better.

According to Bruni’s mother, a former concert pianist who lives in a castle in Italy, Sarkozy has already asked for Bruni’s hand in marriage, although the couple has been dating less than two months. She is considering the proposal, La Stampa reported, and he has asked for an answer by New Year’s Day.

Got that? Her mother lives in a castle.

It gets better.

Monogamy “bores me desperately,” Bruni told Le Figaro magazine. “I’m monogamous from time to time, but I prefer polygamy and polyandry,” she said. “Love lasts a long time but burning desire, two or three weeks.”

It gets better.

Sarkozy will soon be traveling to Rome to meet the Pope and other dignitaries, and Sarkozy may ask Bruni to accompany him.

In other words, a freshly divorced Roman Catholic politician will meet with the Pope and then hightail it back to the embassy to bang his bed-hopping, clothing-averse supermodel mistress.

If French politics is always this interesting, I’m moving to Montmartre.
