Through the fog of Dayquil comes these observations.
You can’t make these things up-
I woke up this morning to learn that DSK, aka Dominique Strauss-Kahn aka Le Seducer aka three times accused sex-scapader aka head of the International Monetary Fund has been accused of attempting to force a maid at his $3000.00 a night hotel room to preform a sexual act. Apparently the worlds most powerful banker likes to live life to its fullest.
According to the ABC News reenactment, yes they actually had a reenactment of the events in the hotel, thanks CGI technology, we watched in horror as the 62 year old Lawyer, Economist, candidate for President of France on the Socialist ticket comes out of the shower, nude, and proceeds to chase down the chamber maid around the 10 room suite.
62 year old neekeid dude chasing maids? Scary nes’t pas?
I mean really? After running out of the hotel, following the event he jauled his ass down to JFK to get on the first flight to Paris. I’m sure he was feeling pretty good al snuggled into his seat when the FBI rolled on board and dragged him off in cuffs. I’d have like to see his face when he learned that IMF Head.. does not qualify for Diplomatic Immunity, in other words, you get a phone call and we keep your passport. Bienvinue d’les Etas Unis Msr. Scumbag.
Perhaps more surprising in this thing, the fellow in charge of the International Monetary Fund is a Socialist? I bet he gets universal health care. Matter of fact I’m sure he gets great health care because there’s no other way to explain a 62 year old, buck neekid chasing a 20 something maid around a 10 room hotel suite with a smile and une l’ érection.
Reminds of when Norm Coleman was the Senator of Minnesota, his father, who was about 85 at the time got caught in a compromising position with a prostitute. Norms quote at the time “We’re going to get Dad all the help he needs” Sanks quote at the time “Sounds to me like Dad doesn’t need any help, he’s doing OK on his own”.
Well, here’s proof that the news makes you ill, after watching the story about horny toad, or frog I guess to be more accurate, no less than 5 ads; Beneicfical Fiber, Gas-X, Tums Antacid, and just to round things out, Depends, now in colors.
On the same week that Minnesota Law Enforcement Officers were honoring their fallen comrades by holding a 24 hour vigil at the Minnesota Law Enforcement Memorial, the Minnesota House passed a bill to make it easier for Minnesotans to shoot police officers when we find them in our yards.
The new legislature has caved into special interests and decided to loosen up the rules for Minnesotans to shoot other Minnesotans by expanding the definition of “self defense”. In the past you only justifiably shoot someone if they were in your home, and if you felt your life was in danger or you were being threatened with bodily harm. And if you did kill someone, in court you would have prove that it was done in self defense.
Well, the paranoid nut jobs gun lobbyists didn’t feel this was good enough. Now in Minnesota you can shoot anyone who comes into your house, garage, shed, tent, whatever.. and when you shoot them, the burden of proof is on the prosecution to prove that you were not shooting them in self defense.
I would ask why we need this? Is there a rash of home invasions that I didn’t know about? I certainly haven’t heard of anything, except that one in Pakistan and homeowner there proved that having weapons around doesn’t necessarily make you safe.
I think it’s probably time to stop visiting friends who I know to be gun owners because frankly, they can blow me away with very little justification. BTW, full disclosure, I have several rifles and shotguns around locked up as well. Being a sportsman however I have no use for a handgun and do not happen to believe I have either the need or the right to have one. Just me.
As long as I’m thinking about the legislature, we’re also apparently going to put an initiative on the ballot to put a “protect” marriage clause in the State Constitution. I’m now dreading the election just for that measure. I’m sure we’ll be treated to months of the most angry hateful bigoted ads you’d ever want to see as folks who have lost every other equal rights battle now have drawn their last line in the sand on this issue.
And in the end; guns, Gays and abortion, the other topic that’s rearing its head are distractions. The help the public forget about the real issues that no one wants to really address, budget, jobs and taxes.
As I like to say, “other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?”
