COMMENTAIRE? NON!: In response to this open letter to Jacque Chirac by LT Smash, Glenn Reynolds suggests that journalists call the French Embassy for a comment. Somehow, I don't think they'll have one, given this hilarious exchange on US-French relations. You can go read the questions yourself, but here are the answers:

Thatís a hypothetical question. Iíve nothing to say at this time.

No comment but I invite you to take an interest in things less anecdotal than those kind of rumors in the press.

I never comment on statements by French politicians, itís not my job. As to the substance of your question, the minister repeated during his recent trip to Turkey, Jordan and Iran that France had principles and stood by them. [Note the past tense -JT]

No comment.

No special comment.

Well, that cleared everything up!
