An e-mail to Instapundit implies that some Americans have stopped buying French wine in response to you know what. Presumably they’re switching to Chilean and Australian stuff. That’ll save them money, I hope – good for them. But the reason for the switch (now that’s consumer sentiment!) is so ridiculous I can’t help but admire the impressionable folks’ small-mindedness. They think it’s all serious, Chirac and all, that the French are treacherous surrender monkey (insert a 10-page quote from Goldberg and instapundit here)… poor souls. Actually, Instapun’s right, Argentinean, Chilean, Australian, Bulgarian – and Romanian? and Moldovan? – wines are great, just no match to French produce.
