Super Cecilia Frees Bulgarian Nurses
Not content to single-handedly save the free world, Nicolas Sarkozy sent his wife, Cecilia, to win the release of the five Bulgarian nurses and the Palestinian doctor who had been sentenced first to death, then to life in prison for purposely infecting 400 Libyan children with the AIDS virus. While Cecilia was technically not empowered to actually engage in the negotiations, her presence in the EU delegation obviously added the needed Sarko touch, that "je ne sais quoi" that ultimately leads to success.
Nicolas himself will follow up with a visit to Qaddafi's Bedouin tent "...to help Libya rejoin the international community."
Next up for Sarko the Magnificent? Bringing Lyuba, the frozen mammoth cub, back to life.
