This is your Moment of Clarity #252: Thinking of reporting a Vatican sex crime? Now, it's illegal!
During this Tuesday's Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on sexual assault in the military, Sen. Claire McCaskill excoriated the Air Force general who overturned a sexual assault conviction as a "poster case of a lack of training and understanding of sexual assault."

The senior Republican senator from South Carolina -- who serves in the U.S. Air Force Reserves and opposes taking sexual assault cases out of the military chain of command -- says that women in the armed services "put up with way too much crap."
Democratic strategist and rape survivor Zerlina Maxwell suggests that the way to prevent rapes is telling men not to rape. What happened after was ugly.
