On Saturday, Hollandes campaign director Pierre Moscovici and communication director Manuel Valls were both invited to celebrate the birthday of Socialist lawmaker Julien Dray at a popular disco bar on Paris notorious Rue St Denis. What Dray had failed to mention was that DSK, as he is known in France, was also a guest at the party.
Hollandes former partner and defeated presidential candidate in 2007, Segolene Royal, was reported to be furious when she learned of DSKs presence and stormed-off without meeting him.
Its lucky that I didnt find myself face-to-face with him, she said. I left because it is out of the question for me to meet with Dominique Strauss-Kahn if only out of concern for the rights and respect due to women. According to newspaper reports, Valls went over the DSKs table to greet the one-time presidential hopeful and his wife, journalist Anne Sinclair, while Moscovici seemed unaware of Strauss-Kahns presence in the bar.
Dray was unrepentant at the furore over the incident claiming it was a private event and he had not noticed that his birthday and the second-round of the presidential election came in the same week.

Silly Froggies. With the exception of the French Foreign Legion, they are a nation of pussies.
Point of fact: April 25 is the birthday of DSK!
All the socialist elite, la gauche caviar, attended.
The birthday party took place in a former sex shop on the rue Saint-Denis, a bar known as “J’ose.” (I dare)
DSK attended with wife, Anne Sinclair.
It gets worse!
The kicker is that the restaurant used to be a sex shop and plays on its past: it has menu headings like “foreplay” and “orgasm”.
Sarkozy spokeswoman Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet joked about the Rue St Denis
address, a street which has historically been associated with prostitution, saying “you couldn’t make it up.”
I predict a Sark win...
DSK: You see the menu is tres sexy. You can order "foreplay", or "orgasm", or "doggy style".
Hussein: Forget the 'style'. Just fry me up some dog
Mooch: (thinking) This Paris place is great. Gotta get back here for a long weekend vacation - without the gay Indonesian - and with 50 of my closest BFFs.
get with the lingo! you mean...
... griller chien!
Let's just say he is "experimental." I notice they kept him off the ball field this year. Wise move.
Sounds like Sarkozy’s entre-tour strategy has been to tie DSK to Hollande on the one hand and to say sweet little nothings to FN voters on the other hand.
Unfortunately, it’s probably not going to be enough, unless a miracle happens.
