Fringe Feminist of the Month

I hereby dub French President Nicolas Sarkozy Fringe Feminist of the Month. I learned of Mr. Sarkozy from this Washington Post article.

A conservative party member, Sarkozy defeated Socialist female Segolene Royal, who was blasted for her moralizing by french feminists according to this Free Republic article.

So why am I dubbing her male competitor feminist of the month? Sarkozy has risen above tokenism by choosing seven women to be among the members of his cabinet. For that alone he deserves the title.
