We All Know Why Woody Allen Supports Polanksi

And now I guess we know why the French “Culture Minister” signed the petition, too

France’s Culture Minister Frederic Mitterrand is facing intense pressure over a book he wrote that described paying for “young boys” in Thailand.

The book was written four years ago, before he joined the government, but is back in the headlines following his impassioned support for Roman Polanski.

Polanski has been arrested in Switzerland on child sex charges.

Mr Mitterrand, nephew of former President Francois Mitterrand, has come under attack from right and left.

In his 1995 book The Bad Life, he wrote: “I got into the habit of paying for boys,” saying his attraction to young male prostitutes was not dimmed despite knowing “the sordid details of this traffic”.

“All these rituals of the market for youths, the slave market excited me enormously… the abundance of very attractive and immediately available young boys put me in a state of desire.”

“The Bad Life” indeed.

In his defense, Mr. Mitterrand called Polanski’s behavior callous and horrifying.

Oh wait, that’s what he said about the US:

Mr Mitterrand said the US’ behaviour, in seeking his (Polanski’s) extradition, was callous and “horrifying”.

But you see this is all some sort of Right Wing Vendetta against the poor fellow, you see

Mr Mitterrand, 62, has denied being a paedophile, saying the term “boys” was used loosely.

That ain’t all that was “used loosely.”

    How loosely could the term be used? When he said “boys” did he mean “wife”? And if so – the guy PAYS his wife for sex? Is that the only way she goes near him, or something?

    Maybe the dear Culture Minister is a raaaaacist, and meant “boy” in a Maureen Dowd fashion?
