THE French have abandoned their traditional disinterest in the private lives of politicians, labeling the girlfriend of President Sarkozy a 'total pump'.
Carla Bruni, the model and actress, has been taken to French hearts with many admitting they have been won over by her stunning shagability.
Traditionally the French ignored the sexual adventures of their leaders, partly because they valued personal privacy, but mostly because the women involved were rather plain.
But Bruni, including her amazing legs and knock-out boobs, has led to a resurgence in French national pride.
Christian DeLange, political commentator for Le Monde, said: "I have no doubt Sarah Brown is, how you say, a delightful woman and she may even look good in boots.
"But Carla Bruni, she is une hump par excellence. You would, how you say, need a crane to get me off her."
Albert Lamarque, the celebrated poet and activist, said: "France is great once more. We will soon have a first lady who all the world will want to have sexual intercourse with."
He added: "Carla Bruni – c'est magnifique. She makes Catherine Deneuve look like, how you say, Ken Dodd."
