Again, Le Pen

Talking of Electric Review, this piece on Le Pen says what I was struggling to say. The man may not be the most attractive thing on two legs, but he's no simple fascist.

One thing that should interest Justin Raimondo (who was ever so happy at his success on Libertarian grounds):

Furthermore, Pierre Poujade, his mentor from the 1950s, has only harsh words for he who was once his youngest parliamentarian. The militant shopkeepers' leader told The Observer on 28 April that Le Pen "lied to me about his past. He glorified his army career. He now sits up their in his chateau at Saint-Cloud, spending the millions he got by heaven knows what means and does not represent or care about the little man. I will be voting Chirac next Sunday."
