I'm sorry, this Slate headline has got to be rewritten:

En Marche, Centrist Machine Party That Devoured Much of Socialist Party, Appears to Do Very Well in Legislative Elections that Most French People Couldn't Be Arsed About; Stage is Set for Gradual Slide Towards Appeasement of Far-Right and a Cosmetic Reworking of Everything Marine Le Pen Wanted.

No, it's not pleasant seeing other democracies fall into the same trap as the United States did post-2008.  But I can't pretend that it's not happening.
