Former French President Chirac to stand trial

GREAT NEWS!

Chirac is facing charges that he masterminded a scheme to have Paris City Hall pay for work that benefited his political party when he was mayor —before he became president in 1995.

I can't help but wonder why Bush is even mentioned in this story?

Bush gets the last laugh again.

"If the trial goes ahead as planned, Chirac, 78, faces a month in court"

A month in court?? Sounds boring.

But he was anti-Bush. Doesn't that grant him some kind of immunity?

From the article: "The former president, a bugaboo for George W Bush during his rush to war in Iraq... Chirac was perhaps best known internationally for vocally opposing Bush's drive to war in Iraq"

I wonder if Chirac will be convicted of the charges against him in this trial.

Meanwhile Bush chills on his ranch, smirking...
