    I was going to say that any pseudo-scientist who thinks rape is an example of genetic adaptation or evolutionary technique was themselves a missing link. But I don’t think they even got that far on the evolutionary chain. I dunno–do we have anything about 50 billion years behind an australopithecus? And then can we go 50 billion years further back than that? THEN we might be able to locate the brain of a rape-apologist.

    first of all, hi samhita! it’s your old friend from frisco. hope you are doing well :)
    second, i don’t like sarah palin either (obvs), but an increase in her disapproval numbers of 1% in one poll doesn’t really mean anything. it’s well within the margin of error. that article is kinda bad at analyzing these things i think.

    In the spirit of the sarcasm on Kanye, I must provide this link regarding Palin: http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/371413/january-18-2011/mika-brzezinski-experiences-palin-fatigue
