Getting An Earful Of The Eiffel

The Post’s “Reliable Source” runs this quote:

“You are the America that we love. Women like you . . . do a lot to bring our two peoples together.”  — French President Nicolas Sarkozy, awarding his country’s Legion of Honor medal Thursday to Barbra Streisand.

What is it with celebrities and France?  And we don’t mean either Jerry Lewis or Paris Hilton.

We mean folks like Woody Allen, who once said: “The United States and France have been great friends and great, great allies going back many, many years.”  And after the Iraq war broke out, Madonna said this to a French audience: “Here in France I feel at home.”

Talk about a Sarkozy relationship.
