You know everyone has a blind spot in life…

…Anne Applebaum’s just seems to be odder than others.

As one commenter on the site noted, if Applebaum finds the description of rape and sodomy “salacious”, she needs help.

Her statement is here one quote:

Of course, there were some very legitimate disagreements, including two excellent ones from my colleagues Gene Robinson and Richard Cohen, and I take some of their points. But to them, and to all who imagine that the original incident at the heart of this story was a straightforward and simple criminal case, I recommend reading the transcript of the victim’s testimony (here in two parts) — including her descriptions of the telephone conversation she had with her mother from Polanski’s house, asking permission to be photographed in Jack Nicholson’s jacuzzi — and not just the salacious bits.

Patterico has this to say:

There is nothing in there about asking the victim’s mom for permission to have pictures taken in the jacuzzi. Applebaum made that part up. [UPDATE: Not that it matters. The suggestion that the mother’s consent to jacuzzi photographs would amount to consent to her daughter’s anal rape is perhaps Applebaum’s most amazing and offensive contention yet.]

It is amusing to read her commenters. They are having none of it.

You know I think I should revise my crazy uncle theory. After the past month maybe everyone is a crazy uncle, just about different things.

Update: Hey it’s not like it was Mark Foley or Elia Kazan. It is eye opening.
