What’s in a picture?


Daily Beast says it’s “The Picture Worth a Thousand Words”, a pic from New York magazine of Dominique Strauss-Kahn meeting the Obamas for the first time at the G20 summit in Pittsburgh. Dominique appears seriously taken with Michelle–and seriously creepy:

Dominique predatory; Barack territorial; Michelle serene

Ben Stein would have loved the Court of Louis XVI

Did someone mention guillotines?

Really. He thinks rich and famous people – when charged with a crime – should not, repeat not, be treated like the rest of us.

Here are a few small jewels from  his very odd piece in The American Spectator, wherein Mr. Stein, famous failed economist, is outraged that one of his own [Dominique Strauss-Kahn] has been charged/arrested/incarcerated. This column – or whatever it is – is  destined for viral greatness.

He is one of the most recognizable people on the planet. Did he really have to be put in Riker’s Island? Couldn’t he have been given home detention with a guard?

A man pays $3,000 a night for a hotel room? He’s got to be guilty of something. Bring out the guillotine.

If he’s found guilty, there will be plenty of time to criticize him and imprison him.

That last is my favorite. Since Riker’s is populated by those charged with crime but not yet found guilty,  why don’t we let them all go?
