Ex First Lady’s Major Faux Pas

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy’s stupidity has reached a level that even I have never fathomed. (And that’s saying a lot considering my country birthed such idiots as the screechy Sarah Palin, the gay-man-marrying Michelle Bachman, and general vagina-hating-rape-loving senators of the Republican Party.)

At first glance, this quote from Vogue (which C B-S “guest edited”) sounds like an insanely dumb gaffe. Like if you’d gone to Vogue‘s interview, and accidentally sharted on their silk, Louis XV chaise due to a night of heavy drinking and bad mexican food.

You don’t need to be a feminist in my generation. There are pioneers who paved the way. I’m not at all a militant feminist. On the other hand, I’m a bourgeoise.

— Queen of the Morons

We don’t need feminists? Admitting being bourge like it’s some kind of badge of honor? Unfortunately for Lala, it doesn’t end there. REFRESHER COURSE! What’s a feminist, kids? Wikipedia says: “an advocate or supporter of the rights and equality of women”

And, just so we all are clear, what’s a bourgeoise? Dictionary.com says…

1. a member of the middle class.
2. a person whose political, economic, and social opinions are believed to be determined mainly by concern for property values and conventional respectability.
3. a shopkeeper or merchant.

Call me crazy, but from the quote above and my vague knowledge of her social status, Carla may very well be confused about what she is or isn’t. She’s essentially announced above that she is a poverty-conscious upper-middle-classite (and/or shopkeeper??) who doesn’t support the rights and equality of women.

Le sigh.

    Sorry dear, but in France, “bourgeoise(e)” culturally identifies the man or woman who is a member of the wealthiest social class of a given society; and their materialistic worldview”…

    What an ugly article. I won’t be back to the paris blog. Grow up and realize your vajayjay isn’t the most important thing in life.
