Yay for Palin!

Have you read the discussion in Alaskan congress that passed the bill? Apparently, the people who wrote those articles had not read them because that discussion would explain everything. Furthermore, rape is a rare occurrance in Wasilla. Why should Palin as mayor have focused on a problem that doesn't exist? The whole allegation comes out of an imaginary problem. When you look at Palin's job as governor, she did focus on the needs of all Alaskan women.

Whether rape is a rare occurrence or not isn't the issue, the issue is that she supported a policy of penalizing a crime victim based on gender.

And I suspect the women who were raped would take issue with you calling this an imaginary problem.

It has yet to be proven she supported that. Nor did she or the state legislature penalize a crime victim. They billed the victims insurance company to cover a test, so as to save funds.

If rape is a rare occurrence in Wassilla, then it is a problem that likely doesn't exist. Your twisting her words. You would have a stronger point if she were mayor of say Anchorage or Fairbanks.
