  •  Does she not understand the meaning (10+ / 0-)

    of the words she said?

    In particular, the rather basic conjunction "because"?

    Also, she said she read the piece in the New York Times. But while the Times did include a quote saying that the victim dressed more like a 20-something than an 11 year old, there was absolutely nothing in the article that implied, as Passidomo was quoted, that the victim dressed like a "prostitute".

    And even in her supposed "walkback", she says that if we're to try to avoid this in the future, we should be focussing on how girls dress. Meaning that she really does think that the choice of attire was a significant factor. She doesn't say anything about whether this society might glorify male sexual aggression, and whether that might have any part in rape. She's an idiot, and her response just proves it.

      she would have stood by her guns, so to speak.  She would have realized that being a Republican means never having to say you're sorry, or pretend you are sorry.  She would have attacked the liberal media and become the next Palin wannabe.

      The fact she didn't stand firm and tries to walk her comments back tells me she knows she was badly wrong, but is too proud to simply admit she was way off base in making those remarks and apologize to the victim, the victim's family and to all women and men who have ever been raped.

    •  Her logic is self-contradictory: if the boys (3+ / 0-)

      were "predators" who were "going to find somebody" no matter what (as Passidomo said, "The blame is solely on the boys for what occurred...Those kids were going to find somebody. They’re predators"), then how would the girl's appearance have made any difference at all in whether or not they attacked her?  

      Either illogical, or hypocritical bullshitter-- but no way is she reasonable or judicious in her thinking on this.

      That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10
