Rooms we'd love to be a fly on the wall in, and truly nothing more.

What do you if you’re Dominique Strauss-Kahn, and after the longest summer in your life which forced you to resign from your job at the IMF and sidelined your shot at a Presidency, your name has been cleared in a criminal trial (although a civil suit alleging the same rape that landed you in the pen and another accusation of a 2003 sexual assault awaiting you in France both persist)?

You go for an awkward visit with your former colleagues! Which is what Dominique Strauss-Kahn is likely doing right at this very moment.

Obtained by Bloomberg, an unsigned email circulated in the International Monetary Fund offices in Washington D.C. notes:

“…On a personal visit to the Fund later today, [Strauss-Kahn] would like to have the opportunity to say goodbye to staff..All staff who would like to do so can meet with him this afternoon.”

Who will attend? Who will abstain? What will they talk about? What will be said? Who will be the first one to bring up “that whole rape accusation thing”? And what do the Dealbreaker commenters have to say about this?

  • “DSK, meat, staff”
  • “It all depends… Dick in or Dick out? DNA samples firmly in the palm of hand. etc, etc.”
  • “Sounds a lot like polling the electorate. Can I come? - B. Clinton”

Obviously, if you were there, we would love to hear all about it. Until then, here is a clip of Dominique Strauss-Kahn trash-talking former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson in financial meltdown documentary Inside Job, back when people could listen to what he had to say about money without picturing him running down a Sofitel hallway naked:
