Here are Kyl’s comments, via Roll Call reporter Meredith Shiner:
“It’s like the judge telling the woman who got raped, ‘You asked for it because of the way you dressed.’ OK? That’s the same thing. ‘Well America, you should be the ones to apologize, you should have known this would happen, you should have done — what I don’t know — but it’s your fault that it happened.’ You know, for a member of our State Department to put out a statement like that, it had to be cleared by somebody. They don’t just do that in the spur of the moment.”
Third – The Statement Romney condemned because he’s an *** is not the same thing as a woman being raped. Kyl is doing his best to support Romney, I guess, but shows us the exact mentality of a GOP.
