Director Roman Polanski is sitting in a Swiss jail today while efforts to extradite him to the U.S. are ongoing. His supporters and his attorneys are all outraged that a 31 year old arrest warrant is being enforced! They state, for the record, and in all earnest lack of comprehension that after all, a long time has passed, the victim of Polanski's rape doesn't want him prosecuted and besides, the man is a genius and has already spent 40+ days in jail to answer to this charge.

I beg your pardon?

The average sentence for a convicted rapist is 288 months and heaven knows what the sentence would be for someone who rapes a child! An official familiar with the case had little sympathy for Polanski, pointing out that he raped a 13-year-old girl, pleaded guilty to a charge and then chose not to face imposition of whatever sentence a court was going to set. As the offender, the source said, Polanksi does not get to determine his punishment -- the legal system does.

I get such a kick out of liberals who think that one standard of legality should apply to them and another to the rest of us rubes out in flyover country!

Bring the kinky bastard back to this country, let him present his case of prosecutorial misconduct, renounce his guilty plea, whatever. But let him endure his day in court, just like any other sick s.o.b. who seems to think he is above the law!

I still have a problem with this "genuis" label everyone throws around concerning this alleged artiste.

I mean, hell, I figured out how to play Benny and the Jets just by listening to it... that don't make me Billy Joel.
