Ooh, Mrs Kieko Fujimori is more original than a lot of the Kayne West parodies, so I'll go with that. But I also like plain Astatine.

If you mean entire country, I would rank as follows:

1.  Switzerland
2.  Belgium
3.  France
4.  Canada

If you just mean French speaking parts then

1.  France
2.  Quebec
3.  French part of Switzerland
4.  Wallonia

I agree with you on the French speaking parts, but not on the countries as a whole

On the entire countries it's:

1. Switzerland
2. France
3. Belgium
4. Canada

I'd say until the last quarter of a century or so, Belgium was definitely more conservative than France, but Belgium has really liberalized and secularized in the last 20-30 years (think of it kind of like Ireland)

And funnily enough, Flanders is quite economically rightwing and quite nationalist/anti immigration, but it's probably the more socially liberal half of Belgium. Belgian politics aren't straightforward in terms of comparisons.

But even then, even comparing the immigration/citizenship laws for example, Belgium has more liberal ones than France, and in terms of say abortion laws, Belgium basically has the same ones as France (that being said, abortion was illegal in Belgium). Belgium also legalized gay marriage first, with the majority of opposition coming from Wallonia. France got to it a decade later with a lot more opposition.

And then even on economics/fiscal policy they're quite similar. Really the only thing that really sticks out as being more conservative in Belgium at this point is they still have their monarchy while France doesn't.

Nothing will ever top the concentration of stupid in this image

I'm a fan of Kanye's music and creativity but that whole White House visit was bizarre!

Bloomberg News report that of the absentee ballots returned to the Board of Elections by Tuesday, 46% came from state Assembly districts that Adams won, followed by 31% from districts Garcia won.

Welp, it was a fun ride.

Well, Adams won 37 ADs (56.9%) while Garcia just 25% of them. Regarding votes, ADs that Adams won represent 50.2% of the vote while ADs that Garcia won represent 25% of the vote. That suggest that the absentee ballots could improve Garcia's result.
