Jazz, it's fine if people want to talk about this. I was just saying it's not something I personally think is super important. Sorry if I seemed dismissive.

"Looking at her records is not smearing her. We want to know her policy history and how she ran her town and state. I don't see anything wrong with that." I agree. Torg we're discussing rape kits because that was one of the topics of this thread ~ as opposed to all the other issues one could be discussing. I think it is very relevant that Wasilla was the ONLY city that charged its victims for the rape kits under Palin's authority. I think it shows how heartless she really is. Her history shows she is not a compassionate person but a power hungry person, who is now reaching her glory. I also think its irrelevant whether the perpetrator can afford the rape kit or not. Maybe the victim can't afford it either. She wasn't the one who forced the rape.

in my opinion, the swiftboating against John Kerry and his military record was far more shameful than anything Palin has had to go through so far. Perhaps the poster was not above four years of age?

I think it feels like a smear camp because we just don't have enough time to get to know here -- so everything that's bad is coming out. But if McCain would have vetted properly and choose someone with less issues -- he wouldn't have this problem. She did poorly on that interview with Charlie. (http://teamsugar.com/user/dreamsugar/blog/1983402) She couldn't answer tough questions -- she skated around the issues -- didn't know what the BUSH Doctrine was. That's not smear. Jokes aside -- this woman is not ready to be VP or President -- and you all seem to be missing this. Stop crying victim -- looking into someones sordid past isn't a crime. She need to buck up -- this is a tough job -- it isn;t just tea parties and cakes.

I don't know why I bothered to comment here. Obviously, some of you need to grow up. This was a waste of my time. Have at it, children.

"as she has been on the receiving end of the biggest attack I have ever seen in a presidential election." -- Is that because you are 12?

This is just another example of the smear campaign against Sarah Palin. I don't understand why we can't talk about the real issues that matter in this election, and stop trying to insult and attack the candidates, especially Palin, as she has been on the receiving end of the biggest attack I have ever seen in a presidential election.

I don't think she wished to charge them - but I don't think they worked hard/fast enough to find a solution.

Unfortunately, charging rape kits to insurance companies etc is not an uncommon practice. But, the article states that the town wants it to be part of restitution charges as to not burden the victim or taxpayers: "" Ultimately it is the criminal who should bear the burden of the added costs, Fannon said. The forensic exam is just one part of the equation. Id like to see the courts make these people pay restitution for these things, Fannon said. Fannon said he intends to include the cost of exams required to collect evidence in a restitution request as a part of a criminals sentencing."" To say she wished to charge victims for being raped is just more smear. I am not even a fan of Palin, I am just sick of dirty politics.

GS, I'm getting ready to write my thesis based on your statistics presented here, so they'd better be spot on!

I just watched it! She didn't do very well IMO. Didn't answer questions clearly, looked nervous and unravelled a bit. This is just my opinion though! I definitely don't think it helped her. When referring to foreign policy experience she referenced knowing a lot about energy? A little bit of a far stretch if you ask me.
