That’s the final score of the Dominique Strauss-Kahn sex scandal: All charges have been dropped against the former International Monetary Fund boss.

We now look forward to the obligatory Amanda Marcotte auto-beclownment which, as night follows day, completes every major sex scandal.

    I thought it was your arguments with Little Miss Attila that follow Marcotte’s assclownery that completes each major sex scandal?

    Did you survive the earthquake, Stacy?

    This incident can teach us a lot.

    For instance, if you are going to accuse a famous person of rape, it is best not to speak with a prison inmate in a recorded visit and tell them you plan to make a lot of money on the deal.

    Also, you need to have a plausible explanation of why different men have deposited tens of thousands of dollars to your account from places around the country.

    Lastly, NEVER stay at the Sofitel hotel in Manhattan.  The guy was paying $3000 a night for a luxury suite.  Crime lab people found the semen of FOUR different men in the room besides the registered guest, including one sample on the wall.  For three grand a night, I expect a better cleaning job than that.  It’s almost as if the maids aren’t even there to clean . . .

    Yeah, it shook the house pretty good for about three seconds. I at first thought it was either (a) fighter jets, which sometimes circle hereabouts, as we’re just 15 miles from Camp David, or (b) blasting at a nearby rock quarry.

    Too bad the quake didn’t hit last night: “So, did you feel the earth move, baby?”

    This may not be the final score, as the maid may go after DSK in civil court.

    I still haven’t got over the fact that being a socialist wasn’t one of the charges.

    We’ll have to have President Palin fix that in 2013.
