Been Raped? It's Your Fault!

So say the Saudis. They've sentenced a woman who was kidnapped and gang-raped to 200 lashes for her ordeal. As if the kidnapping and gang rape (by 7 men) wasn't punishment enough for "being alone with an unrelated man."

Full story.

If she was with her brother, would he have been able to defend her against seven attackers?

Why are we allied with these stone age misogynists?

Oh, yeah. The oil.

Water Boarding Isn't Torture... Yet?

Since Mukasey doesn't have a problem with water boarding, at least until there is a specific law that says "don't water board prisoners," instead of the current law that says, "don't torture anyone," I wonder if he has a problem with any of the following torturous, if legal, depravities?
  • Dancing with the Stars
  • Dinner with Jeremy Piven
  • Listening to the checkout girls at The Gap contemplate outloud over who is dreamier, Jake Gyllenhall or Shia LaBeouf
  • Giving dogs to Ellen
  • Playing chess with George W. Bush
  • Listening to Daughtrey
  • Watching NASCAR
  • Flying United
  • Assisting Larry King acquire the blood of virgins
  • Managing the logistics of transporting Mitt Romney's hair spray
