PRESUMABLY HE'S TRYING TO BE FUNNY HERE?:

The Plot to Get Dominique Strauss-Kahn (Jacob Heilbrunn, May 16, 2011, National Interest)

The knives are being sharpened for Dominique Strauss-Kahn—DSK, as he is known in France. Poor fellow! He forgot that he has numerous enemies out to traduce his reputation, destroy his career, leave everything he has worked for—the $3,000 luxury suite, the Porsches—in shambles.

Nicolas Sarkozy, the president of France, has good reasons to try and bring Strauss-Kahn and the socialists into disrepute. But another leading suspect in the plot to get DSK has to be Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany. Everything about the man must repel her. She leads a personally austere lifestyle.


...but this is profoundly tone deaf.
