Republican Jackass of the Week

A Wall Street Journal columnist named James Taranto.

In a recent article, this latest honoree made the jaw-dropping statement that when college sexual assaults occur, equal blame should be placed on both the perpetrator and the victim. See? The victim's just as much to blame for being raped, according to James, especially if they've both been drinking.

This feeds into the age-old mentality of claiming "she had it coming to her" based on what she wore.

So thanks to this highly enlightened genius, if you're raped, it's your fault. I guess it follows that if you're robbed it's your fault, too.

Sounds like this guy is being groomed to host a show on Fox. He already works for the Wall Street Journal, which is owned by Rupert Murdock...
