The irresponsible world of entitled guys swinging big ...

appendages around. Or in the case of DSK, a Viagra-enhanced monetary incentive.

I love this quote:
Two men with ties to Strauss-Kahn have been put under preliminary investigation in France on charges including organizing a prostitution ring and misuse of corporate funds.

Strauss-Kahn's name surfaced in the investigation last fall and his lawyer has asked that Strauss-Kahn be allowed to tell his side of the story. One of Strauss-Kahn's lawyers has said that the former French presidential hopeful never knew that the women at orgies he attended were prostitutes.

“He could easily not have known, because as you can imagine, at these kinds of parties you're not always dressed, and I challenge you to distinguish a naked prostitute from any other naked woman,” Henri Leclerc told French radio Europe 1 in December.
DSK is so repellent in character and physique that women should only accept his advances when considerable material benefits are offered.

Here's another instance of a man with delusions of grandeur - the chest-thumping captain of the Costa Concordia, a coward and a liar when required to act honourably and responsibly.

Feel free to provide other examples in the comments thread.

CBC did a report on the Costa Concordia wreck, 'walking through' events of the night she went up on the rocks.

The captain was the epitome of a banal fictional villain. The kind, who when written up, would likely get a redline note from an editor stating he was too stereotypical to appeal as authentic.

The deputy mayor of the community off whose shore the ship wrecked-*who climbed aboard the sinking vessel to help*, the gruntline 'service' class of employee aboard the cruiseliner and the outraged commander of Coast Guard operations in the area were the people who decided leaving others to panic and die was not something they'd stand around and watch.

That's the sad thing. Incidents of privileged people buggering something up and walking away going 'hey, not my problem' abound. The governments in Greece that got them into their debt crisis? The repeated financial institution crises in the US? Vic Toews refusing financial support for his first family?

Did you see the photo of the captain at the link I posted?

Central casting, please send a Fabio clone to the Costa folks, stat!

I blame 'Love Boat'.
