The United States of France

In Time magazine Bill Saporito caricatures how Americans love to mock the French:

They work, what, 27 hours in a good week, have 19 holidays a month, go on strike for two days and enjoy a glass of wine every day with lunch. For this, they pay a tax rate of about 103%, and their labor laws are so restrictive that they haven’t had net job gains since Napoleon.

(The online version of the comment is even more elaborate.) In the comment Bill Saporito mocks the Americans for mocking the French while becoming ‘more French than France.’ Read the entire comment, it is great. I have to pay attention to this guy!
