French Presidential Candidate Campains with Promos

According to the Associated Press, “Members of the conservative Union for a Popular Movement have been touring beaches and vacation spots across France with truckloads of party merchandise to shore up support for Nicolas Sarkozy, interior minister and party leader.” Amongst the giveaways, largely targeted towards youth are promotional condoms, something I don’t imagine a conservative party distributing in the US. Meanwhile, according to the article, the Socialist Party, the main leftist party in France, sells its goodies at an online store. For a sweet-smelling candle, the caption reads: “Keep the flame of socialism burning at home and at the office.”
