If you're even contemplating voting for McCain and the woman who's name must not be said, then read this disturbing blog post from Feminist Finance.

This policy is beyond repulsive..to charge a woman any amount of money to run a rape kit just boggles the mind...do these idiots also charge for the follow up counseling? This policy could scare women away from even going in if they can't afford the bill for this...unbelievable..

Yen...awful and repulsive barely begins to describe the misogyny of it all!

Oh my God, that is gut-wrenching. Not that I was even remotely considering voting for her. Ugh.

Citizen...even if it wasn't her town, the whole concept is just disgusting!

I'd heard this on some chat show --disgusting is too polite. The woman is beyond scary manipulative. At first I thought it was the Rove machine at work, then I kept reading more and more about the whacked out things she's gotten away with in Alaska. Be afraid. Very afraid.
