As everyone knows by now, John Tavolta stars as a governor from the deep
South with his sights set on the Oval Office. In the words of Kathy Bates'
character, "He's poked his pecker in some sorry trash bins." Here we are
in France, a mere 28 days away from the World Cup, whose official mascot is
a cartoon rooster ("coq" in French) named Footix. (They keep her well
hidden but I've heard his girlfriend is a foxy hen named "Dominatrix.")
Apropos of "Primary Colors" and its utterly coincidental resemblance to the
travails of a sitting U.S. president, it may be of interest to note that
per my unabridged dictionary: "The cock was used as an emblem of the
American Democratic party from 1842-1874."
