"Everyone knows that Dominique Strauss-Kahn is a libertine, and that he is distinguished from others by the fact that he doesn't try and hide it," he wrote. "In puritanical American [sic], infiltrated by rigorous Protestantism, financial misdeeds are far more tolerated than pleasures of the flesh."
    Indeed, a little rape never hurt anyone...

    I'd like to see a pic of the victim.

    Michael Savage (barking loon) claimed it was like that scene in the Godfather where that senator was set up by the Corleones by being drugged and put in bed with a dead hooker

    Hey at least it was a woman and over the age of 15 too

    Nah, he's French, remember? Any sex scandal for a French man running for president will gain the guy votes, not lose them!

    There seems to be a worrying lack of understanding on this forum between the French believing consensual sex between adults is a private affair and the French applauding sexual crimes. It is extremely disrespectful both to the French and to women who suffer in this way.
    George Monboit "Neoliberalism is inherently incompatible with democracy, as people will always rebel against the austerity and fiscal tyranny it prescribes. Something has to give, and it must be the people. This is the true road to serfdom: disinventing democracy on behalf of the elite."

    It's not so much an actual steadfast conclusion Jet, as it is more a flavor I get after reading the first page of the thread. It seems that the liberals posting are almost willing to give the guy a pass, and say that nothing happened, or the "innocent til proven...." line.

    I get the feeling that if this guy Kahn weren't in line with liberal, even Socialist views, say more Conservative ideals, you same people would be roasting his remains by now wondering why he wasn't publicly executed. And the victim would be all the rage being a black woman. Hell, we could probably get Jessie out again offering a scholarship for that reason alone.

    Do you ever take off your partisan sunglasses?

    I don't think anyone is handing out any hall passes. Everyone just knows that sometimes it is too early to bite the hook with an initial news report. This story could go both ways. We have seen false rape reports and then we have seen the upper crust rape the underlinks.
    This will all be sorted out by the police. Since I wasn't there and only going by what some reporter wrote then I am uncomfortable in guessing who is telling the truth.
    But by all means go ahead and do your partisan parade.

    Were you just as uncomfortable during the Duke case?
