No doubt DSK gets one of the girls with the white armband at the M  Re parties.  And how can anybody junk someone on such a ludicrous topic?  Why?  The inverse, junk as flag, is the problem to begin with for DSK.

Strauss promised the Judge not to flee

If he granted him sweet liberty

     When to France he would sneek

To party with Roman Polanski.

The HBO movie of this whole affair just won't be the same if he doesn't overpower his guards, speed to the airport, board a fueled-up G5, and zip off to France where he will be welcomed as a hero and elected the next President of France.

Getting bail for DSK was difficult. Bill Clinton had to vouch for his character. DSK will be staying at Clinton's office in Harlem. Like other executive suites, Clinton's office is more of a home away from home, with a bedroom, shower, maid's quarters, Sexually Transmitted Disease clinic, etc.

Mine's lame, but maybe inspiration will come (more slowly than he did with the maid, I'm sure)

There once was a randy old Gaul

Who took a political fall

Cause of charges he laid

A New York hotel maid

Who couldn't escape him at all.

A maid he did jump

His career in the dump

Thanks, Sarkozy Twitter leaks!

In court he claimed his net worth at $2 million and did not have the rumored vast resources for wealth to pose a flight risk.  2 million ins't much.....so why the fuck is he claiming that he was charging the $3K/night room ton his personal credit card? People with only 2 million stay in $90 hotels.  What a fucking liar. Pure scum.....I could kill him if I wouldn't be prosecuted.  Guess I'm just an hardened man.

This is just the first step.

I guarantee this guy is going to get off easy.

Pay a big fine, and some community service, maybe a couple months behind bars, that's it.

Within 6 months of his release, he'll be swilling booze and chasing women with all the other G-7, Davos, and IMF Plutocrats.

Alpha Thugs and PigMen continue to rule.

Always have.

Always will.

Just look how much more power they obtained after the 2008 crash.  Bigger, fatter, stronger, wealthier than ever.

Nothing is ever going to change.

Thumbs up for justice, home boy. Ha Ha.

Everything neatly arranged by the shadow IMF: Resign and get a lawyer, bail money, an expense account and a pension. But he might not get another invite to Bohemian Grove this year. Bummer.

I don’t think he kicks it there.  Bohemian Grove is for conservatives who enjoy consensual, homosexual sex and owl worship.  Socialists like DSK prefer straight rape.

His lawyer shoulf arrange a dozen lie detector tests proving consent, then he should ove to have the charges reduced or dismissed so he can get his job back. Unless, of course, he could not pass the lie detector tests in which case he s in hot water...

The newer technologies based on brain activity imaging have not been excluded. They do require brain activity though and I'm not sure vampire or squid brains would work. I think you have to be human.
