Political Point Scoring- Mostly Own Goals

The Guardian really is the lazy blogger's friend. Today Amanda Marcotte condemns the politicisation of sexual assault:
Unfortunately, as anti-rape activists could have told you, there's no such thing as a sex crime too brutal that some folks won't try to use it for political score-keeping.
 Marcotte is a dimwitted femiloon who writes things like this:
In the meantime, I’ve been sort of casually listening to CNN blaring throughout the waiting area and good fucking god is that channel pure evil. For awhile, I had to listen to how the poor dear lacrosse players at Duke are being persecuted just because they held someone down and fucked her against her will—not rape, of course, because the charges have been thrown out.
Can’t a few white boys sexually assault a black woman anymore without people getting all wound up about it?
Of course technically she isn't using a sex crime for political point scoring but using a transparent hoax so maybe that's okay.
