Just like in Chile!

So, apparently some in France think it would be a good idea to make former French presidents senators for life after they leave office. That way Jacques Chirac could avoid prosecution for corruption when his term is up.

Now, I'm not a big fan of French politicians, but doesn't this seem a little low even for them? Didn't Pinochet create the same position for himself before he left office? It would do Jacques well to remind himself what has been happening to good old Augusto lately.
