La gloire de la France

National Post columnist Kelly McParland on IMF chief (and French presidential contender) Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s bizarre sex assault charge, and the French reaction to it:

3. Roman Polanski angle Has anyone else noticed how quickly all of France has concluded Strauss-Kahn is a filthy dirtbag, and deserves whatever he gets? Fine with me, but isn’t this the same country that insisted Roman Polanski was a brilliant director persecuted by ignorant American philistines just because he had a taste for raping 13-year-olds? So, France has two levels of justice (not to mention morality), one for film directors and another for boring old IMF directors?
