Bitch PhD finds that when Sarah Palin was mayor of Wasilla, victims of sexual assaults had to pay for their own forensic examinations (so-called rape kits). This apparently was a cost-cutting measure designed to save Wasillans money. And yet, B points out, around that same time, Palin oversaw the construction of a massive taxpayer-funded boondoggle white elephant sports complex for her hometown. I’d like to make a joke here. I really would. But words fail me. What is there to say about a politician who believes that government should be big enough to provide people with hockey rinks but small enough that citizens in their darkest hour must spring for the cost of investigating the crimes committed against them?
