For a moment, I thought Belmont Club was crediting Instapundit with single-handedly damaging France's foreign relations:

France appears to be less influential than it once was even in Africa (thanks to Instapundit).

I was impressed, until a more careful second reading of the sentence in context showed that he meant "hat tip to Instapundit", and was thanking him for the information, not the lessening of French influence.

Come on now, I thought Glenn Reyolds has the power to bring France to their knees...right?

C'mon... anyone who can fakes a passible German accent can bring the French to their knees. There's a reason the one German phrase most French women know is, "Hallo, stattlicher Soldat, sind Sie in der Stadt neu?"
