France Hearts Dean?

A reader from France notes:

In its last issue, Le Nouvel Observateur has placed a picture of Michael Moore, as the Statue of Liberty, on it’s cover. The disgusting title: “L’Amerique qu’on aime, il n’y pas que celle de Bush!” (The America we Love, there’s more than Bush’s America!).

Inside the magazine, a piece on the perfect candidade: “Howard Dean : joker des démocrates”).

In French, a joker means “wild card”, not “pathetic fool”, more suitable when mentioning screaming Dean.
