The Plight Of Le Tiers-Etat

Pity the poor common Frenchman of the Third Estate. He will never know what it’s like to be Dominique Strauss-Khan. To go from a ministerial Renault or Peugeot sedan to an Audi A7. To show up in an A7 to his court hearing on charges of “aggravated pimping”. To have half naked women throw themselves at you, while cocooned inside your A7. To deny such charges by stating that participation in orgies (filled with sex workers procured by DSK) were merely “rare”. Forget the 35 hour work week. The French know how to live.

    I love naked women probably even more than the next guy.... hell I've made a not-insubstantial amount of cash from them. That being said.... what the hell does this have to do with "TTAC" the brand? Slow news day huh?

    First, I definitely can't see why this rant belongs on TTAC. Second, to all those making fun at the French (no, I'm not), let's not forget: - DSK was NOT elected French president. Could he have been? Probably not, as his opponent (Sarkozy) was well informed about his 'way of life' - DSK was chosen as Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund even though quite a few people (including, but not only, the Murrican Prez) must have been aware of his way of life - DSK's role model could have been... JFK. Who's sexual life was probably even more 'creative'. And who did get elected to be the Murrican Prez, nonetheless.
