Pennsylvania Governor Bill Corbett filed a lawsuit against the NCAA for their sanctions against Penn State. The school received a $60 million fine, a four year bowl game ban and limited scholarships for, according to a report by former FBI director Louis Freeh, failing to disclose Jerry Sandusky’s shower fun times with children since they first became aware of it back in 1998.
Gov. Corbett, who served on the Penn State Board of Trustees back when the scandal broke, reviewed the NCAA’s bylaws and alleged that the college sports association overstepped its boundaries:
“Corbett’s spokesman, Kevin Harley, said Corbett came to believe the NCAA had overstepped its bounds and had not followed its bylaws, which limited sanctions to infractions relating to recruitment, academics, and football.”
See? Nothing about molesting children, so it’s OK when your school profits from it.
When you’re a controversial figure who can’t seem to get anything right in the media, it’s best to lay low until a real softball of an issue comes your way. You know, something you can’t possibly ruin … unless you’re Sarah Palin.
Half-term Gov. Palin made an appearance on her best friend-in-a-totally-non-creepy-way Greta Van Sustern’s Fox News show. While interviewed, she took the very tough stance of being against raping children. (That’s raping, not wrapping children, which is still legal if you punch a few air holes in the box.)
But, she didn’t leave it at that. Oh, no. Sarah had to prove she’s more disapproving of forcible sex with children than anyone. More than President Obama. More than Rep. Nancy Pelosi. Even more than George Soros.
“As for the perp and perps that allowed the sinfulness to go on as they had allowed in the past, you know, I say about this assistant coach Sandusky: Hang him from the highest tree. I’ll bring the rope.”
And, just like that, Sarah Palin forced the world to consider if she’s more annoying than forced pederasty is terrible.
