What? I like this guy. Le Pen doesn't seem half as nuts as the American media makes him out to be, let alone the EU media.

Le Pen sees himself making it to the second round of the elections. That is what he says in public, at least. According to his rosy scenario, he will win 19 percent in the first round, surpassing Socialist Prime Minister Lionel Jospin (who will take 18 percent) and then, on May 5, run against Chirac (whom he predicts will get 22 percent in the first round). Most analysts are not ready to take this possibility seriously. Le Pen is too old, some say. He hasn't successfully reinvented himself, he's run out of steam -

Boy, aren't the experts feeling like a bunch of idiots?

What's French is their reaction to him. This guy gets about 1 in 6 votes, the other 5 going to the Left, and now he's this chilling threat to France? Puh-LEEZE...
