I kind of think you don't get to those positions of power unless you have a few skeletons in your closet that they can easily drag out if you decide to cross them....
which well, probably means we are being ruled by a bunch of sex crazed social degenerates really...
It's all about perception management. The media is trying to dig up as much dirt as they can on Dominique Strauss-Kahn so they can hang the man before he ever sees the inside of a courthouse. It reminds me of the Terry Schiavo case, where devoted-husband Michael was pegged as an insensitive slimeball for carrying out the explicit wishes of his brain-dead wife. Do you remember how the media conducted their disgraceful 24 hour-a-day Blitzkrieg with the endless coverage of weepy Christian fanatics on the front lawn of the hospital while Hannity, Limbaugh and O' Reilly fired away with their sanctimonious claptrap? And now you're telling me that that same media is just "doing their job?" Give me a break. Whoever wants to nail IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has really pulled out all the stops. Their agents have been rummaging through diaries, hotel registries, phone records, yearbooks, yada, yada, yada. The UK Telegraph even paid a visit to a high-priced DC knocking shop to get a little dirt from Madame Botox; whatever it takes to make a randy banker look like the South Hill rapist. And they're doing a pretty good job, too. The cops have made sure that the "Great Seducer" always appears handcuffed and dressed in a "pervie" raincoat with 3-days stubble before they parade him in front of the media. On Wednesday--more grist for the mill--they released his mug-shot, an unflattering, deadpan photo that makes him look like Jack-the-Ripper. Was that the intention?

This is me playing devils advocate. Seems like the right thing to do for TPTB. It ruined one man's ambition, but saved an entire economy.
Even without Dollars being torpedoed desperate people are committing suicide as I type this because of the economy. No one wants that to get even worse right?
Two railway tracks, one with one man laying unconsciously on it, the other with a school bus full of children. Train is heading for the children. Do you throw the switch and let the train run over the man, saving the children?

The reason the Dollar is being bought is that you need it to trade oil.
