Dominique Strauss-Kahn Round-Up

▲The nitwits at the NYPD Special Victims Unit didn't know she was a prostitute before subjecting a presumptively innocent man to the indignity of the most publicized perp walk since Lee Harvey Oswald?

▲The Wall Street Journal victim-blames the victim for putting himself in a situation where a woman can destroy him with lies.  How about we just focus on the rape liar at this stage, folks?

▲A genius at the New York Daily News wrote this: "Okay, her credibility is as wobbly as a three-legged chair, but that doesn't mean she wasn't attacked."  Great. Except that this case is solely about credibility, madam.  And if she has none (and she doesn't), then the charges against DSK must be dropped, and he needs to be treated as if nothing happened.  Even though that doesn't fit your preferred narrative, madam.

▲The DSK case just the latest in a cavalcade of missteps by the NY district attorney, who should resign, but not before dropping the charges against DSK and apologizing profusely. A few tears would be appropriate.

▲And Time Magazine's blog has the scariest headline of all: "Legal Holes Develop In the DSK Case, But Will Women Care?"  You see, yet another lie has seemingly "exposed" what pigs men are (even though it hasn't), and women aren't likely to want to lose the benefit of those lessons (even though those lessons aren't based in fact). Think Duke Lacrosse, Lorena Bobbitt, Kobe Bryant, Tawana Brawley.  To quote Bobby Darin: "Yes, that line forms on the right, babe, now that Macky’s back in town …."
