Free Tahiti!  

How the hell do the French do this? French Polynesia, aka Tahiti, has elected a pro-independence president who is promising to lay the groundwork for the eventual independence of the islands.

How do they persuade their colonies to move out of the house and get a job? We're the most hated nation on earth, and we've been trying to unload Puerto Rico for years (or at least make them a state, so they start paying their own damn freight). It ain't happening. Apparently we are worthier colonial masters than the French. Actually, not all that surprising.

Tip to the Instapundit.
