Roman Polanski Cut Loose By Swiss

Roman releasedIn a bit of terrific news for anyone who was worried that there might not be enough to argue about on the Internet this week, Switzerland has rejected the U.S. government's request to extradite director Roman Polanski on his 1977 rape charge. It seems like decades since that this whole thing went down (Polanski's Swiss detention, not the actual crime), but it was actually less than a year ago. Now I guess we'll never be able to determine if it was rape or rape-rape. [Image via]

Lock up the Swiss Miss.

Where does rapety-rape fall?

Also, I've got a ham, turkey, salami, and Swiss (cheese) sandwich waiting for my lunch. I fully plan to incarcerate that cheese, in my belly.

Just in from Mel Gibson: she was dressed provocatively and so was asking for it.

They know how to keep their wimmins in line, is what.

It's probably because they're pissed we ruined Swiss banking forever.

You can't have it both ways America – either you get the names of people who hide money in Swiss bank accounts or you get the director hiding in a Swiss chalet.

"[The Swiss Justice Minister] said the American authorities had rejected a request by her ministry for records of a hearing by the prosecutor in the case, Roger Gunson, in January 2010, which should have established whether the judge who tried the case in 1977 had assured Mr. Polanski that time he spent in a psychiatric unit would constitute the whole of the period of imprisonment he would serve."

Now why would the U.S. authorities do that???

Racist cow-fetishists and gold-hoarding nazi-abetters stand firm for the freedom of convicted child-rapist and Nicholson friend.

I'm all for it.

Ask Gore Vidal, who I guess has reached that age where you just have to kindly nod and smile at what he says:

Or just let him keep talking and give him more rope.

(Love your avatar, by the way! 13-year-old me definitely approves.)

It wasn't rape-rape. It was just rape. Or maybe not. Either way, this is important, we can all agree. Very important.

I guess 'NO' really does mean 'No.'
