The French Know-Nothings lose

With 98% of the votes counted in the French presidential runoff, Centrist Emmanuel Marcon appears to have scored a landslide victory over the forces of darkness.

Marcon has 65.8% of the vote to 34.2% for Marine LePen, the Nationalist who is more or less the French Donald Trump.

Sanity, it seems, has triumphed in the land of the escargot and fromage. Let's hope it becomes a popular French export among the democracies of the world

Félicitations, frères et sœurs français!
