Dominique Strauss-Kahn in Le Monde's Cartoons

Among the preeminent topics of cartoons regarding the troubles of Dominique Strauss-Kahn in the Big Apple is the glee of his rivals, not only among the members of the right but also among his fellow (rose-carrying) socialists…

From Instapundit:
ROGER SIMON: IMF Head Strauss-Kahn: A Teachable Moment For The French? “A supposed leftist and one-time student communist, he lived the most extravagant personal lifestyle replete with three thousand dollar hotel suites, thirty-five thousand dollar suits (Strauss-Kahn is suing over this allegation by France Soir — but what if they’re only twenty thousand?), unlimited first class seats on Air France, Porsches, etc.”

UPDATE: Wall Street Journal: The stunning sexual assault case against the French IMF chief.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Ya think? Arrest of IMF chief raises questions about organization‘s leadership amid European debt crisis.

MORE: Worse than a “crazed sex poodle:” Past Victim: Strauss-Kahn Was a ‘Chimpanzee in Heat.’ If this is what the French consider a “Great Seducer,” well, that’s just sad.

STILL MORE: Ron Paul on Strauss-Kahn’s arrest: ‘These are the kinds of people who are running the IMF.’

MORE STILL: A reader ventures a prediction: “When it comes the time for this incident to immortalized on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, the bad guy is going to be someone from the right. Or, they’ll ignore the story entirely, and this one won’t be ‘ripped from the headlines…’.’ I’m not taking that bet.
