#rsrh Tina Korbe wins “Best Headline of the Day.”

…I got nothing, sorry:

Dominique Strauss-Kahn tangled up in hooker orgy investigation

Heck, I can’t even beat Tina’s first line:

Today is Mardi Gras and, if I’m going to give up sordid gossip for Lent, then I’d better post this story now.

The snark is strong in this one.  Always a pleasure to see a talent blossom…

#rsrh So. Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s bail restrictions eased…

with the only thing left keeping him in-country is that they’re keeping his passport*.

If I had a nasty, suspicious mind I’d be publicly wondering what the over/under is on him taking advantage of the Fourth of July weekend travel madness to get out of the country and back to France.  Good thing that I don’t have a nasty, suspicious mind, huh?

*Short version of why: the accuser’s credibility has been called into question, based on her associates, a call made after the alleged attack, and her apparent misrepresentation of her past history to law enforcement officials.  Note that there’s still physical evidence that nobody’s attempting to deny, and the fact that DSK ran for it.  IOW, not conclusive proof, but the courts more or less had to take this all into account when assessing DSK’s flight risk.

#rsrh DSK Watch: nice… asterisks.

The UK Daily Mail quite self-consciously (and quite rightly) considers itself a step above the British tabloids, or perhaps a step and a half.  Or an entire flight of stairs, for that matter.  But they are British, and thus will happily report salacious details… if they’ve been suitably bowdlerized, of course.

Disgraced banker Dominique Strauss-Kahn told an Air France hostess she had a ‘nice a**e’ just moments before police hauled him off his flight, it has been claimed.

You have to wonder if this guy is all there, or something.  In terms of karma?  That’s Just Asking For It.

#rsrh DSK / HIV.

Well, now.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn may have more to worry about than a possible prison sentence.

The IMF chief’s alleged sex-assault victim lives in a Bronx apartment rented exclusively for adults with HIV or AIDS, The Post has learned.

It is, in fact, a shame – for the woman, of course.  But if DSK actually did commit rape (read the article for why I’m calling it that now) then I am forced to note that my sympathy is muted.  Particularly since even though it’s unlikely that he’ll catch the disease himself (or so I’m told) AND even if he gets off of the charges somehow the man’s ‘love’ life just took a nosedive anyway.
