Will Brigitte Bardot do a Ronald Reagan to become President of France … ?

There were people who did not give Reagan a chance of becoming President of the USA, yet he did.

Now, aging French former-actress and animal activist, Brigitte Bardot, is considering running for the presidency in the next French presidential election of 2012.

She has been approached by the independent ‘Green’  party – L’Alliance Écologiste Indépendante to be their candidate. She says that she’s seriously considering accepting their offer. She’s even written to President Nicolas Sarkozy to tell him so.

“As you are doing the contrary to what you say and as your ministers hide the truth from the French, I am studying the proposition made to me by the Alliance Écologiste Indépendante to be their candidate in the presidential election of 2012,” she wrote in her letter according to the French news agency (AFP).

Brigitte Bardot, who was once known worldwide as BB the sex-kitten (who speaks of sex-kittens anymore these days?) retired some 40 years ago. Having refused all anti-aging treatments – she even says she’s never had a facial in a beauty salon – her once beautiful face has become wrinkled and puffy. She turned 76 in September.

The Alliance’s two leaders, Antoine Waechter and Jean-Marc Governatori, have confirmed to the media that they want ‘Madame Bardot’ to be their presidential candidate.

‘Madame Bardot’ has had to appear in court several times these past few years on racist charges. She had begun to speak out about Muslim ritual killings of animals. From there she had gone to blaming France’s social woes on immigrants and homosexuals. Racism and homophobia are punishable crimes here in France. Each charge had ended in her having had to pay a large fine.

Brigitte Bardot has been writing letters to France’s presidents, as well as other world leaders, for years already, always objecting to the maltreatment or slaughter of some animal species or other. She also appealed to Americans not to vote for McCain and Sarah Palin in the last (2008) US presidential election. She objected to Sarah Palin having posed for a photograph lying back on a settee which was covered in a throw of bear pelt.

    I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. I’d liked to say that I’m shocked, but I’m not. It’s a very bizarre world we live in, but on the bright side, if she does run, it will give us plenty of blog fodder!
