It turns out Palin is not the economic lightweight I thought she was. I just learned of a new bailout plan she's circulating.
Effective immediately, the federal government should start charging victims for rape exams. The money raised will go towards bailing out our beleaguered financiers.
One of McCain's good friends and campaign donors once compared rape to the weather saying, "as long as it's inevitable, you might as well lie back and enjoy it." When our fearless hockey mom found out about this joke, I'm told she found it patently offensive. She felt it should be:
As long as you're going to experience emotional trauma and physical trauma, why not a little financial pain as well? You'll suffer regardless, so why not do what you can to help others avoid suffering?
And she's absolutely right. Women should not enjoy rape while there's a financial crisis going on. It's unseemly.
