Until he hit the news, I wouldn’t have been able to tell you who Dominique Strauss Kahn was. Right now, devoted seducer though he may have been, there is still something about it that’s like squaring the circle. It doesn’t quite add up.
One can imagine someone hitting on women; one can imagine someone persistently hitting on women and rumors of more than that seem to be coming out of the woodwork now … but forcibly jumping on someone who just happened to walk into your room while you were taking a shower is still a step-and-a-half beyond that. If he did it, he should plead insanity. If he didn’t — well that doesn’t hang together either. Be interesting to see the trial.
