To me, it's almost laughable that feminist caterwauling about John McCain is being paid attention to by anyone.   Much is being made of a joke McCain reportedly made in 1986 involving rape (he says he doesn't recall doing so), as proof that he is irretrievably anti-woman.

This doesn't pass the straight face test.  The feminists and lefties are shocked, shocked! by a 22-year-old joke, while meanwhile they've defended and glorified a president who exploited a young female intern and was credibly accused of rape?  In what moral universe is an alleged joke worse than an alleged act?

Please.  Come back when you're serious.
