Why Is This Not On Front Page of NYT?
UPDATE: McClatchy Newspapers has it now. Thanks, Atrios, who adds
Who knows, maybe we should have some sort of innovative libertarian a la carte police system, where you basically get billed for parts and labor whenever you call them. Access to the law based on your ability to pay, that kind of thing.Indeed.
While Mayor, Sarah Palin Charged Rape Victims for their Own Justice
Let's put this into perspective. One of the services that almost every American (with the exception of a few hardcore Libertarians, I suppose) agree that our government should provide is policing and investigation into crime, especially of a violent nature. Rape, one of the most difficult to prosecute, disproportionately affects women--young women, in fact. If Palin wants to play fierce mother hen in her stump speeches, I suggest she explain how it is that she wouldn't do everything in her mayoral power to make sure that rapists be caught and prosected.Just compare this to Joe Biden's responsibility for the first 1994 Violence Against Women Act, and role in all the updates (including the 2005 rewrite that ultimately outlawed this practice).
You don't have to be a woman to know what's right and what's wrong. Go get 'em, Joe.
