DSK’s Worst Nightmare – Anne Sinclair Wakes Up! – and leaves him. To anyone who is even vaguely aware of the “adventures” of Dominique Strauss Kahn, the question is not “Why?” – but – “Anne – what took you so long?” Why did it take an intelligent, cultivated Woman this long to to see what the world already knew? Surely her friends must have been giving her updates and advice? It’s one thing to “stand by your man.” It’s another to bury your head in the sand.
When the news of the “Great Seducers” first (publicized) “consensual love moment “(uh….that would be Sofitel Hotel, New York?) made headlines, and wifey not only stood the bail, paid the lawyers, and , bien sur, flew to the big apple to “stand by her man” – some French were proposing her as the new “Marianne”, the Female symbol of French liberty, reason, strength and all things good and proper.
My immediate reaction to that was to recall the old(but still accurate) tee-shirt that proclaimed: “de Nile is more than just a river in Egypt.” Amen.
Alors,DSK’s Worst Nightmare is now a reality. Anne Sinclair has shaken off the deep, comforting sleep of denial and has woken up. And CAN smell the coffee .Glory gee to beezus! (or someone just like him)
So, where does this leave Big Chief “he-who-cannot-keep-it-in-his-pants?” Easy question: it leaves him “Without.” With a capital “W.” Without (real come -to- your -aid- no -matter- what) friends.Without a snowball’s chance in hell of “re-animating” his political career. And most sweat-producingly – without a billionairess footing his substantial legal bills.
Ok, DSK still has has 300K or so per year from his (first) departure from the IMF, and maybe even a luxury car or two to auction off. But that’s not enough to keep his “dream team” in sushi for more than a week. And then what?
Jail – not an generator of warm fuzzies at any age – especially in your 60’s – is one possibility. Not only is M. Strauss Kahn facing a civil suit in New York from his former “consensual love partner” – here in France there is “Le Affaire Carlton.” That being a luxury hotel where it’s alleged DSK was involved in “procuring” women for businessmen’s pleasure in said hotel. (as we would say back where DA BG comes from – “a pimp.”)
But wait – there’s more! Although the “Great Seducer” did escape a previous rape charge by a young French Journalist, as I related in THIS POST, his “troubles” then encouraged other Women who had been involved in “escapades” with DSK to come out of the closet. Impossible to imagine that won’t continue. N’est ce pas?
So – Dominique Strauss Kahn clearly will not need shades for his future. Whatever it brings – the appropriate adjective will not be “bright.”
But , don’t count DSK out just yet. Remember two things:
1. He is “The Great Seducer.” Perhaps another billionairess (or millionairess, sniff, sniff) will fall under his spell. Perhaps he will CON – vince his legal team to take their several tons of flesh sometime in the future.
2. There is, as far as we know, no “Fat Lady.” And we all know: “It’s not over ’til the Fat Lady Sings.”
THROW ME A BONE HERE, PEOPLE!
