The Washington Post Adopts Slate and BuzzFeed's Outrage-Trolling Business Model: Hey, Maybe Teachers Should Rape Their Underage Students
— Ace

Twitchy goofed on this yesterday.

The Washington Post announces a new Common Core centered on the 3 R's: readin', writin', and rape.

As protesters decry the leniency of Rambold’s sentence — he will spend 30 days in prison after pleading guilty to raping 14-year-old Cherice Morales, who committed suicide at age 16 — I find myself troubled for the opposite reason. I don’t believe that all sexual conduct between underage students and teachers should necessarily be classified as rape, and I believe that absent extenuating circumstances, consensual sexual activity between teachers and students should not be criminalized....

I do think that teachers who engage in sex with students, no matter how consensual, should be removed from their jobs and barred from teaching unless they prove that they have completed rehabilitation.

Wow, rehabilitation. Throw the book at 'em, huh?

But the utter hysteria with which society responds to these situations...

Just let that sink in.

This wasn't a spontaneous comment; she chose those words, edited those words, resolved upon those words for her final draft.

...does less to protect children than to assuage society’s need to feel that we are protecting them.

You know what would protect them? Making teachers who have sex with their minor students go to "rehabilitation," Filner style.

I don’t know what triggered Morales’s suicide...

Her family has some thoughts on the matter. You might want to peruse them.

..but I find it tragic and deeply troubling that this occurred as the case against Rambold wound its way through the criminal justice system. One has to wonder whether the extreme pressure she must have felt from those circumstances played a role.

One might also wonder if the statutory rape of a minor had something to do with it, but only an uptight grumpus would think that.

I’ve been a 14-year-old girl, and so have all of my female friends.

All my current friends are 14-year-old girls. We have pool parties and sometimes we massage each other.

God bless you for your work, Madame. Me and my 14-year-old jailbait posse are sick of society looking askance at our Forbidden Love.

When it comes to having sex on the brain, teenage boys got nothin’ on us. When I was growing up in the 1960s and ’70s, the sexual boundaries between teachers and students were much fuzzier.

Yet another Aged Bent Hippie here to tell us all dirty stories about the dawn of Free Love and the Steam Engine.

Throughout high school, college and law school, I knew students who had sexual relations with teachers.

Sidenote: It has always been legal to have sex with college students and law school students, unless it's a Doogie Howser situation.

Note how cavalierly she merges "sex with adults" with "sex with children."


To the best of my knowledge, these situations were all consensual in every honest meaning of the word, even if society would like to embrace the fantasy that a high school student can’t consent to sex. Although some feelings probably got bruised, no one I knew was horribly damaged and certainly no one died.

No one died?

You know what else no one typically dies from? Rape. Maybe we should take a second look at rape generally.

On the other hand, awareness of sexual harassment was also much lower. Pretty much every woman I know has been sexually harassed in at least one, and usually many, of her jobs and/or academic settings.

Let's stop talking about this stupid Criminal Sexual Abuse of a Child Issue you're all on about and talk about what really matters, the sexual harassment I experienced in my pre-menopausal years.

Incidentally, you know what else no one typically dies from? Sexual harassment.


I was fired from a waitressing job in Boston in 1979, during my first year of law school, after I refused to sit in the manager’s lap like the other girls. I would have much rather seen that sleazebag dragged through the legal system than certain teachers I considered friends despite their sexual relations with students that today would land them in jail.

Yes he should go to jail for the rude and bad behavior of asking you to sit on his lap and then firing you from a shitty job that you didn't want, but child rape? Eh, no one dies.

The point is that there is a vast and extremely nuanced continuum of sexual interactions involving teachers and students, ranging from flirtation to mutual lust to harassment to predatory behavior. Painting all of these behaviors with the same brush sends a damaging message to students and sets the stage for hypocrisy and distortion of the truth.

NAMBLA just emailed me: "She gets it! It's all about protecting the Children from damaging messages about repressing their desires to have sex with adults and society's hypocrisy!

This is what we've been trying to say!

Finally! Someone has the guts to say it!"

Many teenagers are, biologically speaking, sexually mature.

And hot. Don't forget hot.

And also unspoiled and unschooled in the ways of love. Easily manipulated and shaped into one's preferred sexual forms.

Which, let's face it, are just other words for "hot."

Pretending that this kind of thing won’t happen if we simply punish it severely enough is delusional.

No one pretends this, idiot. No criminal law on the books pretends that if we just outlaw a thing, it will all magically stop. (Except for gun-control laws, of course.)

We know banning murder does not stop murder. But this antiquated notion of "criminalizing crimes" has several salutary functions, such as reducing the number of murders. If murder were not illegal, we'd have a shit-ton more of it, believe me, Sister.

No one has ever said the law against murder reduces the murder rate to zero. This is rather obvious, "Lawyer."

But what would the murder rate be if murder were, insanely, not a crime? Think about it.

Would the murder rate double? Not even close. As a first approximation we'd guess it would increase by a whole order of magnitude -- ten times as many murders -- and that's probably lowballing it.

People like killing each other a whole heck of a lot. And despite this idiot's assertions to the contrary, people also notice that young but sexually-mature (or close to it) girls can sometimes be rather attractive.

Without a law criminalizing either of these natural (and bad) impulses, we'd have a hell of a lot more murders, and a whole hell of a lot more sex with children.

Now sit on my lap and tell me about the days of Woodstock and "The Charleston."

...

If religious leaders and heads of state can’t keep their pants on, with all they have to lose, why does society expect that members of other professions can be coerced into meeting this standard?

By the way, this woman is a lawyer. Just pointing that out.

A more realistic approach would be to treat violations in a way that removes and rehabilitates the offender without traumatizing the victim.

NAMBLA just me an email, which says "MegaDittos-- we just don't want to traumatize the victim."

The intensity of criminal proceedings, with all the pressure they put on participants...

Again, protecting the children from the "pressure" of having their Special Love for Coach Billy exposed before the world.

...the stigma...

Oh God, now she doesn't even think sex with children should be punished with mere stigma. Even that is too great a penalty to pay for Love.

Love of Children. The Greatest Love of All.

...the community and media scrutiny, and the concurrent shame and guilt they generate, do the opposite of healing and protecting the victim.

NAMBLA just sent me a third and final email:

HEALING and PROTECTING the CHILD!

YES! YES! YES! YES!

YESSSSSSS!!!!!1111!!!!

Attached to the email was the picture of a post-orgasmic penis in its early refractory phase.

Yet another case of a media outlet putting a sad woman through the ritual cruelty of public exposure of her stupidity and delusion in order to garner some Humiliation Traffic.

They do this to women a lot.

Ah, yes. Convolving sexual relations by high school pupils with their instructors with sexual relations by college and law school students with their instructors, without drawing the distinction that the first of these situations INVOLVES A MINOR.

***

This is a real thing and one that troubles me greatly.  My purpose is to protect kids but forcing them to testify against their will can be damaging, particularly if the defendant is daddy or granddaddy.  There is a cop I've worked with on many cases whose daughter was sexually assaulted.  He told me that it looked way different on that side of the table.  We did a pretty lenient deal because he was trying to protect his daughter.  There is another cop I had many cases with who I just had arrested sexually assaulting his twelve year old stepdaughter.  She now says that if she had known what was going to happen., daddy in the slammer etc, she never would have told.  It's not an easy thing to know the right thing to do.

MASSIVE URGENT REFORMS MUST BE FORCED ON THE ARMED SERVICES WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT. CAREERS MUST BE INSTANTLY DESTROYED REGARDLESS OF FACTS IN EVIDENCE, AND A CLIMATE OF CREEPY INSTITUTIONAL PARANOIA INSTILLED. AT ONCE, AT ONCE, DO YOU HEAR?!?!?!

60 Just a thought here: I know there isn't necessarily a connection, but if a 14-year-old has sex with a teacher and then commits suicide at 16, I'd assume that the two, being relatively rare events, might have something to do with each other. I.e., it wasn't all that consensual. Maybe she "consented" at the time (probably more like "relented") but that's why we have statutory rape laws. She isn't capable of understanding the ramifications of what she's agreeing to and he is supposed to. This seems part of the general trend in our society that people are assumed not to be in control of their sexual urges.

109 Sadly, I'm not surprised at this column. I'm really not. There are so many things going on with this but let me point out one: Parenthood is really not assumed anymore. Many more people don't have children and don't feel as if they have to think like a parent when it comes to public issues. So when a woman like this (she has a website that mentions all sorts of things about her, but doesn't mention kids, so I assume she has none) thinks about a 14-year-old girl having sex with an older man, she doesn't think of the girl as a daughter or a niece, she sees herself in the 14-year-old girl. And, through the lens of maybe some nostalgia and projecting her current maturity (such as it is) onto her 14-year-old self, she imagines how cool it might be to have had sex with a much older man. And she thinks that she could have easily handled it as though giggling about David Cassidy's tight pants is sex. I don't have kids myself, but if you know any 14-year-old girls, you know the one thing they can't handle emotionally is sex with a much older authority figure. I suspect she doesn't know any 14-year-old girls.

118 So WaPo should be writing an editorial bemoaning the lack of sensitivity and respect for one with a serious debilitating mental condition.  I am talking about one of the six co-founders of Dragon*Con.  Starting in 2000 Kramer was accused and charged with molesting children.  He has managed to dodge court and sentencing by claiming various illnesses and emergencies.  But his latest bout of deviancy occurred in CT where he was busted in a hotel room unsupervised with a 14 yr old boy.  Kramer was extradited to GA to face charges there first.

Kramer owned a 34% stake in the Dragon*Con enterprise. And had refused to be bought out by the others.  Well they finally forced a buyout of his shares by creating a new Dragon*Con company that excluded him.  Dragon*Con will not say how much this cost.

I just have to say I am not sensitive to the plight of Kramer.  He is a monster who should be locked away to never see another human face or feel the warmth of sunlight on his face.

122 Seriously, when doing deep research about Kevin Jennings and Harry Hay and so forth (see http://www.zombietime.com/zomblog/?p=1152 and http://www.zombietime.com/zomblog/?p=990 for examples), I actually obtained and read several real publications put out by NAMBLA. Not stuff about NAMBLA published by NAMBLA's detractors, but their own material. And I can say that the opinions and arguments put forth in this Washington Post editorial are EXACTLY THE SAME ARGUMENTS THAT NAMBLA HAS BEEN USING FOR DECADES. Not just similar -- but exactly the same. Ace points this out in his post, but some might see this just as Ace goofing around. But it is not just Ace goofing around. NAMBLA's thesis is: It's all about protecting the children. The trauma of the criminal charges and the trial are more traumatic than the sex act itself. We can end the trauma if we simply decriminalize the act. The kids actually want it. The kids are sexual sophisticates who are actually in control and who are the one who manipulate the adults into relationships. The kids want it -- want it more than we do. To deny their urges is to traumatize them. Adult-child sex happens all the time -- we are being unnatural to deny it or ostracize it. Etc. etc. etc. All these points and more are both in the NAMBLA literature and the Washington Post piece. The Washington Post is literally publishing NAMBLA propaganda.

132 I had an interesting conundrum a while back.  Victim's mom is a junky whore.  Victim lived with grandma and grandpa where she had a fairly normal life.  Victim, about twelve, spent the night at a friends house where she was sexually fondled by the host's grandfather.  I have every reason to believe that she is telling the truth.

A few months later she made a very similar allegation against another family friend.  During that investigation, her grandfather told the police that he didn't believe her second allegation.  (Neither did I.  I think she liked the attention from the first incident including her mom coming back and decided to do it again.)  Although Colorado has a rape shield statute, there is an exception for false allegations.  If we take the first case to trial, the girl is going to find out that grandpa said she was a liar and destroy her most stable relationship. So do I plead this out to something the defendant would take or do i destroy this girl's relationship with her grandpa? 

I talked to the cop about this dilemma and he told me to press on because this girl's life was ruined anyway what with the mom she had.  It's not a pretty world.  We are st for trial.,

159 I also wonder if this woman really remembers being 14. The power differential between a child and a teacher is enormous. Hell, the power differential between a freshman and an senior is enough to prevent the average 14 year old to really have the maturity to stand up to a sexual advancement by an older boy. Now, I don't think that relationships between an 18 year old and a 14 year old are de facto rape, but even that relatively small age span is enough to make consent iffy. That's 4 years, not 34 years.

197 100% of pedophiles agree. Posted by: zsasz at August 31, 2013 04:16 PM (MMC8r) Not to be overly technical, but pedophile refers to a sexual desire aimed at pre-pubescent children. Ephebophilia is the primary or exclusive sexual preference by an older person for a girl in mid-to-late adolescence—the consummation of which is illegal in most jurisdictions. Basically what most would call jailbait. The attraction is for partners who have mostly adult features but retain some juvenile characteristics. Hebephilia is the primary or exclusive sexual preference by an older person for a girl in early-to-late adolescence. The attraction is for partners who have adult physical sexual characteristics, but retain more of a juvinile appearance. While what is and is not legal or socially acceptable had and still does vary, the emphasis on legalization will start with ephebophilia while denying it has to do with pre-schoolers. Thus the slippery slope. The thing is, that the Left wants to treat most adults like children, so this view towards sex with a minor is actually quite consistent with their core ethos.

230 Then there is this f'ing guy: (stolen from HA)


An admitted serial rapist who attacked 38 women in California could be a free man within weeks after the state’s Supreme Court denied prosecutors’ requests to block his release from a state mental hospital.

Christopher Hubbart, a sexually violent predator dubbed the “Pillowcase Rapist,” has spent nearly two decades in mental institutions after admitting to sexually assaulting more than three dozen women throughout California between 1971 and 1982, often putting pillowcases over victims’ heads to muffle their screams. Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey petitioned the state Supreme Court in July to block Hubbart’s release, but the justice’s rejected her request on Wednesday without comment..... \

As I mentioned, this story would be bad enough if Hubbart were just some monster that we caught and locked up, but this convoluted story should be the focus of a larger question of how we deal with serial recidivists. After his first spree of 29 rapes in the 70s, Hubbart was put in a “medical facility.” Then, in 1979, he was released when officials determined that he “no longer posed a threat to the public.” He immediately moved north, attacking multiple women in San Francisco and Sunnyvale before being caught – again – and being sent to – you guessed it – a mental hospital. He was paroled a third time in 1990, whereupon he – surprise, surprise – attacked a female jogger and was taken into state care yet again. Now he’s going to be released.

244 I once read that in your first year in law school you are taught that you will never be a good lawyer unless you can credibly make the "kettle defense."

It goes like this: your client is accused of borrowing a kettle, and returning it in a damaged condition.  So you argue that:

1) my client never borrowed the kettle,
2) my client never damaged the kettle, and
3) the kettle was already damaged when my client borrowed it.

246 Oops. Posted this one on the home-schooling thread by mistake: http://thedailysmug.blogspot.ca/2013/08/obama-supporteranti-fracking-activist.html It isn't just teachers that want to diddle kids.... Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at August 31, 2013 04:50 PM (60Q+L) It is the Left's drive to keep the hoi polloi at perpetual adolescence. Give them a few accouterments of adulthood (f**king, booze, &c.), and they'll happily stay dependent on the state (which has assumed the role of mommy and daddy non-gender specific caregiver and provider. They get all the fun stuff and don't have to worry about the responsibility. Before, you had to become a responsible adult and work hard for those accouterments of adulthood. Now because people can get them easily, they don't actually have to become adults. By providing these things early and often, social development is stopped. Thus the only difference between an 18+ year old and an adolescent, or even a kid, is a physical difference. Thus in a world where the difference between the biological sexes is just a matter of a few superficial parts (since "gender is just a social construct"), becomes just a slight difference in appearance like between the races or between someone tall or short. The physical differences between child and adult are thus seen as minor and bigoted to point out.

Perhaps a FIFY would be simply "she chose those words." Edit? Resolve? Much less reflect? rewrite? You presume the difference between "first" and "final" means anything except "after blindly running spelling-correction." Continuing to read through this Fisking of her rambling substantiates this theory. (Much better than reading the original, too.) ...vast and extremely nuanced continuum of sexual interactions involving teachers and students you guys! And yet, all of it, from flirting to whatever, wrong. Huh. Also, a friend remembers being on some really clean windowpane when he saw Nuanced Continuum open for Moby Grape. The tangent on Murder was quite a riff in itself. ("People like killing each other a whole heck of a lot." -heh. Yeah, and ain't morality a funny thing? There's some who would never seriously consider even so much as keying a car -- even a Prius with Obama and Co-Exist bumper stickers.) Not that it can't happen in private schools, but the public schools seem to be an especially good breeding ground (no pun intended) for this. Now add the "everybody should attend public school" Gestapo, and the "your children belong to the village" kidnappers. The World Union of Communist Indoctrinators vs. a tiny cadre of Indy Ed resisters: those who want to subjugate the family and indoctrinate the children, opposed by those who want to preserve and perpetuate their family's values. IIRC, some old Russian guy once noted something about controlling young minds....

Did she ask for that?  Was it something she expected,  when she asked to have her picture taken with him, or was it just the price she had to pay?

How is Thicke any different from a handsy high school teacher, or Filthy Filner?

258 The double facepalm award for molestation under color of teaching authority this month has to go to a certain female high school teacher down in Florida, who was repeatedly coming on to her underage male pupils, and offering them drugs and better grades in exchange for sex.

Among her communications to one of her former victims was this gem:

"I think I love this not being you teacher anymore".

She was employed as an ENGLISH teacher.

So: hand over your kids to the unionized public schools. Where they can be diddled and given drugs by adults who aren't even literate in the language which they propose to "teach".

275 The current leftist thinking on sexuality is that "gender" is just a social construct and inherently false and oppressive. Those who are "cis-gender" are oppressors. Those who are "trans-gender" because they are born that way - that this contradicts the "social construct" shtick is irrelevant because being contra-normative is seen as good. As such, the differences between the biological sexes are just a matter of a few reproductive parts that have nothing to do with anything else. It is seen as the same difference as between races or short/tall people, &c. They also believe 80% of people are fully bisexual. the 10% who are straight are oppressors and bigots for seeing any meaningful difference between the sexes. Similarly, the 10% who are gay are "born that way" and considered good because they are contra-normative. Under the Left's extreme view of "equality," the only difference between an adult and a child is a physical one since the Left views all but the chosen elite as perpetual children. It is all consistent with their internal logic. This will not end well…

As a first approximation we'd guess it would increase by a whole order of magnitude -- ten times as many murders -- and that's probably lowballing it. I disagree. Should, there would be a burst of mayhem of once the vendetta system takes hold, it will probably go back to near the current rate.

Well, around here (my and zombie's common turf in San Francisco), aggressive recruitment of teens into homosexuality by older gays and lesbians is often excused on the grounds that those adults are just selflessly "helping" to strip away the artificial layers of heteronormativity which had been forced on the young innocents since birth without their consent.

So you see, it's the fault of plotting patriarchal straights that gay recruitment of teens happens. Has to happen. If the evil System weren't screwing up young kids by trying to rudely imprint them with heterosexual behaviors contrary to their natural homosexuality, then there wouldn't be any need for teens to be "assisted" by their elders in returning to their original gay _status quo ante_. Tear down the System and the practice will stop.

It's completely bughouse nuts, but that's what you will hear claimed.

305 The Reverend Jim Jones and the People's Temple, and their hideous mass-murder-suicide spree to include the poisoned Kool-Aid, were from the very beginning an integral creation of the San Francisco progressive left.

307 Editorials like this one are done by "journalists" after the sale of a media outlet is announced, but before the sale is closed. They do it because they pretty much know that they are on their way out, and they write something like this so that they can say that they were fired for speaking their mind. It's a cheap publicity stunt done more for them than their employer. Of course now that Bezos has signed the contract to buy, the Grahams don't give a shit what goes on at the Post.

312 Ft. Hood Jihadist Nidal Hasan Arrives On Death Row… They really should be taking away his wheelchair and throwing him into general population for some good old fashioned prison justice. FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — Fort Hood officials say the Army psychiatrist sentenced to death for the 2009 shooting rampage has arrived at the military prison at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas. Officials released a statement Friday saying Maj. Nidal Hasan had arrived at the prison’s death row. A military jury convicted Hasan last week of killing 13 people and wounding more than 30 at Fort Hood, a sprawling Army post in central Texas. The same jurors deliberated less than two hours on Wednesday before deciding Hasan should be put to death. Hasan joins just five other inmates on the military’s death row. Feel good story of the day

313 231 It is a simple reality (with apologies to the moron lawyers) that one of the very first things that a law students learns is that for every argument there is a counter argument. It need not be logical, real, or even believable, it simply needs to be spoken. Among my lawyer friends, this quality often manifests itself. The simplest discussion (once the switch in their head flips) can devolve into lawyerly BS. *** Lawyers have no trouble with the concept of an untrue fact.

Yep. A simple argument for Congress to make : "The last time the administration sent troops into a revolutionary state, Libya, it resulted in the death of the US ambassador, the destruction of the embassy, and the deaths of three US citizens. The Obama administration referred to the event as a criminal act and sent an FBI investigation team to examine the evidence. Why should we attack the Syrian government, which has not killed a single American, until the FBI has examined the alleged crime scene and then delivers its findings?"

328 On a Carolla podcast, Jim Norton talks in depth about his obsession with illicit sex. After listening to it, some questions come to mind. If some formerly deviant act becomes permissible, does it lose its appeal? Or does an individual's ingrained perception of its past disapproval continue to luster? Is there a plateau for him to find and avoid an unending search for ephemeral excitement in the exploration of taboos?

329 catman, just found how much Kramer was making off Dragon*Con even though he was no longer in any capacity to exercise control.  In 2011 he cleared $154,000 from doing nothing.

What happened was the five other founders sold all the assets of Dragon*Con to a new company.  Split the proceeds and gave Kramer his portion of the buy-out.

330  The point is that there is a vast and extremely nuanced continuum of sexual interactions.....

This gem means we should take child rape on a case by case basis.  If Catholic priests, fundamentalist preachers, Republican congressmen, or other opponents of abortion or same-sex marriage have sex with minors, it should be punished harshly.  Exposing youngsters to that level of hypocrisy can be very damaging to a child's self esteem.

This is just the beginning folks.  In time, the only crime will be stigmatizing sexual deviancy.  And sooner than you think.

334 >>>>But the utter hysteria with which society responds to these situations...>>>>

It sucks, don't it? I spent twenty years trying to drown myself in booze and drugging myself to sleep every night, all while latching on to female versions of my rapist over and over and over, until I blew out my immune system from sheer rage and self-loathing. From the age of six until the age of forty-nine, there wasn't a single day in which I didn't think, "I know: Blow out my brains! That's the ticket!"

I'm just a silly ol' hysteric who needs to get over himself.

Oh, and go fuck yourself, Betsy. Walk in my shoes for twenty-four hours and then come back and tell me about hysteria. Experience the marvels of post-traumatic stress flashbacks, dissociation, and the knowledge that you will NEVER, EVER experience what most of the planet does, which is healthy physical love.

It's like the end of the movie The Rapture, in which Mimi Rogers recognizes that she'll stand outside the gates of heaven forever.

My "hysteria" is forever, Betsy. There's no cure. I'm ruined. So go to hell.

335 335 - Behind progressives' claimed love and respect for people is a deep contempt and loathing.  If you do not subscribe to Betsy's political beliefs she'll call you a hypocrite who only got what you wish on minorities and women.  The horrendous cost of their policies is shrugged off with asinine aphorisms about omelets and eggs.

Or something equally stupid.

Hold on.  The problem with choosing death is that it's irrevocable.  Nobody can tell you what the purpose of your life is.

Praying for you.

337 Yes, the Church stands against the Culture of Death, the Culture of the State. Bloom talked about the family as a point of resistance to the State, too. When a man acquires a family and property, he wants to keep it and protect it. He wants the State out of their lives, with just enough law to enable him to live his own life on his own terms. (Insert obligatory "this means woman too" reference.)

The other religions have already caved to PC. The church is on board with illegal immigration but is balking at the rest.

338 This isn't even worth fisking, I don't know why you keep bothering to fisk an insanely risible post.

Hello people, wake up. This article is an example of what is called "link-trolling". Puffington Host, Salon and Slate, Buzzfeed etc. engage in it as a matter of course. Write an outrageous headline with an insane take on the subject du jour and outraged netizens will come in droves to be appalled and you'll be linked endlessly and with any luck your post will be a 2 day wonder with 300,000 hits. That's all that matters. However, eventually, like click-through ads, advertisers will realize eyeballs done' necessarily mean sales, and there is such a thing as a "cheap hit"- we used to design websites with hidden text of popular terms just to get hits, but they were empty hits, they didn't result in sales or even clicks on banners.

When advertisers begin to stop equating link-whoring traffic with how much they should pay to advertise on a site, it will end.

That, or when people get smart enough to see they're being trolled and stop clicking on idiot columns like this. But that may never happen.

So... should we expect an impassioned plea from her about the terrible injustice being done to Jerry Sandusky, and the obviously horrible effects on his multiple little partners that prosecuting him entails?

Because, is there anything more beautiful and loving than a young boy taking one for.. er from the coach?

I certainly look forward to hearing more from her on this subject!
