Sarah Palin Charged Rape Victims For Forensic Tests

with 4 comments

So awful it sounds like bullshit, right? It’s not.

Sarah Palin likes to brag that part of her “executive experience” was being the Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska from 1996-2002. Well, in 2000 the town of Wasilla began charging women who claimed to be raped for their own forensic testing. Seemed Sarah & Co., decided that they wanted to save the tax payers the estimated $5000-$14,000 per year that these tests cost the city.

From the Valley Frontiersman:

While the Alaska State Troopers and most municipal police agencies have covered the cost of exams, which cost between $300 to $1,200 apiece, the Wasilla police department does charge the victims of sexual assault for the tests.

Wasilla Police Chief Charlie Fannon does not agree with the new (state-wide) legislation (outlawing the practice of charging victims for their tests), saying the law will require the city and communities to come up with more funds to cover the costs of the forensic exams.

In the past we’ve charged the cost of exams to the victims insurance company when possible. I just don’t want to see any more burden put on the taxpayer, Fannon said.

Sarah Palin was mayor of this town. She and McCain are leading in the polls among white women by 12 points!

McCain Jumps to 12 Point Lead Among White Women

leave a comment »

You have got to be kidding me. The guy who cheats on, then divorces, his first wife while she’s recovering from a car accident so he can go off and pick up a new and improved trophy wife 20 years his junior with piles of money, then spend the next 20 years telling rape jokes and calling his wife a cunt has a 12 point lead among white women! WTF?!

Apparently his nakedly cynical ploy of putting a prom queen on the ticket who clearly has no qualifications other than her vagina and is in favor of stripping women around the country of their right of Choice— even in cases of rape and incest– is working.

Here’s the latest poll data.

I seriously cannot believe this fucking stupid shit. Somebody please explain this to me!

Side note: I like Joe Biden and everything, but this latest round of polling, plus the news earlier about Bambi’s fund raising problems is seriously beginning to make me think he shoulda picked Hillary.

McCain Believes Women Should Be Seen and Not Heard

leave a comment »

 

After lying his ass off about Palin appearing on Larry King, it seems John McCain believes that Sarah Palin isn’t capable of talking to anyone. It’s no surprise that this is the attitude of a gigolo who refers to his wife as a cunt and enjoys telling a good rape joke. It is, however shocking come from a man who wants to be the next President of the Untied States. But hey, the prom queen’s got a nice ass— and that’s what he hired her for.

 

Excerpt from TIME:

According to Nicole Wallace of the McCain campaign, the American people don’t care whether Sarah Palin can answer specific questions about foreign and domestic policy. According to Wallace — in an appearance I did with her this morning on Joe Scarborough’s show — the American people will learn all they need to know (and all they deserve to know) from Palin’s scripted speeches and choreographed appearances on the campaign trail and in campaign ads.

Grandpa Simpson Does it Again

leave a comment »

Is it the naked opportunism or the blatant hypocrisy that is most glaring in John McCain?

It seems that after weeks of criticizing Obama for inexperience and judgment, Grandpa Simpson has decided to go with a candidate with no national experience and whose judgement, by evidence of her current ethics investigation, is at best, suspect.

Right-wing clowns will try to rationalize that a one-term governor of a state with a population that is less than many small American cities is not the same thing as being as U.S. Senator— it’s better! they’ll argue. But c’mon, these people have no principles and will argue (read: SAY) anything to win.

The naked opportunism is another matter all together. Does Grandpa McSimpson actually think that he can pick up disgruntled Hillary voters simply by choosing someone with a vagina? How stupid does he think women are? Oh yeah,remember his rape joke? Or how he calls his own Sugar Mama a “cunt“?

I guess he does actually think women are that stupid. But c’mon he ain’t the brightest guy in the world anyhow. (See his Annapolis scores. Where did this spoiled brat of privilege place in his class? Why, at the bottom of course– He is a Republican, after all.)

Side note: remember Karl Rove whining like the little bitch that he is, that if Obama chose Gov. Tim Kaine, it would show a “purely political choice” that ignores the “responsibilities of the presidency“? What are the odds Rove or Fox et al will admit the same here? LOL… yeah, I know…. just thought I’d finish with a joke bigger than the GOP.
