'''''Quai d'Orsay''''' is a Franco-Belgian comic book by Christophe Blain and Abel Lanzac. Based on Lanzac's personal recollections of his career at the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs (usually referred to as the Quai d'Orsay since that's where its main offices are located), it tells the story of Arthur Vlaminck, a young and impressionable university graduate who gets hired by the minister as a "language expert" -- a fancy term for speechwriter.

* ColbertBump: Being caricatured in this comic has made De Villepin ''grow in popularity'' in France[[note]]Something similar happened in 1995 when ''Series/LesGuignolsDeLInfo'' made a very sympahtetic, very funny caricature of presidential candidate Jacques Chirac, who was already pretty funny and CloserToEarth to begin with, and had just been brutally backstabbed by most of his political allies, who supported an opposing candidate from the same party.[[/note]], and has the press gushing about his "fascinatingly hammy[[note]]the word used is ''flamboyant'', which doesn't have the campy connotations the loanword took in English[[/note]] megalomania"



* WriteWhatYouKnow: The work is basically a fictionalized account of the writer's experience as a speechwriter for De Villepin.

** "Lousdem" sounds like "loucedé", which is [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verlan verlan] for "''en douce''", "on the sly" (typically dishonestly so). Which sums up the attitudes of both the US and Lousdemenit governments.
