Although irresponsible blogger types have been talking about it all week, the mainstream media just up and noticed that when Sarah Palin was mayor of Wasilla, hers was the only town in Alaska that charged rape victims for their forensic examinations. Palin's spokespeople are now claiming that she had no knowledge of what her police chief was doing and would never condone such a thing. Which either means she's lying now, or she didn't notice then that the legislative body of her state was passing legislation with a fiscal impact on her town. That's some damn fine executive experience there. [Associated Press]
