This Week in Cray-Cray

Dominic-Strauss-KahnDominique Strauss-Kahn, former head of the International Monetary Fund has been acquitted of aggravated pimping charges stemming from accusations he organized lavish orgies with a network of friends and prostitutes. In 2011, he was acquitted of sexual assault of a housekeeper in a posh New York hotel. The acquittals, widely expected, have produced most shrugs among members of French society. While the charges have quashed his chances at a political career, Strauss-Kahn appears poised to successfully resume his professional career as an investment banker. #rehabilitationalafrançais

    Hi, Nikki! Perfect hatred. Sigh.

    I want—no, I NEED to see hundreds of Republicans arguing on a well-lit stage. Just imagine. Whole chorals of open-carry cowboys, vast mosh pits of birthers, clown cars of economic apocalyptics, 1%ers trickling on everyone, creationist candidates flooding the stage and theocrats parting them. Epic!
