Hillary takes a stand for 'human rights'

Hillary objects to the language of a new Afghan law. The law's most controversial provisions address sexual intercourse in marriage:

"As long as the husband is not traveling, he has the right to have sexual intercourse with his wife every fourth night," Article 132 of the law says. "Unless the wife is ill or has any kind of illness that intercourse could aggravate, the wife is bound to give a positive response to the sexual desires of her husband."

Critics say Afghan law legalizes rape

Well. This might help explain Bill's tendency to wander afield.

Hillary doesn't mind Egypt's secret police grabbing people off the street, imprisoning them, beating them, torturing them:

Hillary really sucks as Secretary of State

but a wife being forced to submit to her husband's sexual advances is way over the top for her. Figures.

Well ... OK ... the law is, of course, unreasonable, and it does, when you get right down to it, legalize marital rape. We here at Blogger Central don't find that law, standing alone, a joking matter.

Until ... Hillary makes her grand entrance.

Then it becomes a grand farce.

Of course, it may just be an Afghan "stimulus package". In that sense, it really isn't any worse than ours. Somebody's getting screwed, and badly, without any say in the matter.
