So, Msr Dominique Strauss-Kahn flees his $3,000 a night hotel for the supposed security of an Air France flight, leaving, we are now told, not only his mobile phone but also a liberal splattering of what NYPD are calling his 'DNA'. Strauss-Kahn, bollock-naked and 'visibly excited' was chasing a hotel maid down a corridor, police allege. After a gross physical assault he imprisoned her in his hotel room as a presumed prelude to rape.
Without Strauss-Kahn in next year's French Presidential contest, polls are showing the votes would be spilt about a third each between Marine Le Pen, Sarkozy and a nonentity candidate of the left. The prospect of Sarkozy being knocked out and a run off between Marine and the lefty will be getting rightist Kermits very excited tonight. Though not, one hopes, as excited as the foolish Msr Strauss-Kahn.
