I Felt A Stir of Patriotic Pride…

… when I saw this quote from an article on French reactions to the Strauss-Kahn rape hearing. Eva Joly, described as a “famed former prosecutor-judge”(!), said:

“Americans don’t differentiate between the director of the International Monetary Fund and any other suspect.”

Isn’t that the point?

Meanwhile, the article also says that DSK is doomed, doomed, because:

The idea of equality before the law in America is an “aspiration,” [a Columbia U law prof] said, essentially a myth. Strauss-Kahn is French, rich and white, accused of raping a black woman in a city that is 50 percent minority.

Everybody join in… RAAAAAAACIIIIIIIST! Yep, DSK might as well be a Duke lacrosse player.

Meanwhile, the Spawn offered the following observations:

DSK “looks kind of rape-y.” (Note to the people of France: she said this looking at a pre-arrest image of the guy.) Also, she wants to know how long it will be before this is an episode of Law & Order: SVU.
