"A Mix of Napoleon and Marx"-(off topic)

That's the headline Brussels Journal gave for this story from the New York Sun.

My first thought was: Groucho?

Today Frau Merkel, who holds the rotating presidency of the EU, will tell the 26 other leaders that they still need a substitute for the constitution that was spectacularly rejected two years ago by French and Dutch voters in what we don't mind calling a decidedly satisfying vote. The 500 million Europeans must speak with a single voice on global issues, Frau Merkel will insist, which means resurrecting the content of the constitution, but calling it a treaty instead.
