Kristen Schaal was on The Daily Show last night to discuss the GOP's attempted re-definition of rape (which they dropped this morning). I don't think I've ever seen a comedy bit use the word "rape" as many times as this one does, and it actually gets relatively uncomfortable. But it seems like that was the point: she takes the GOP's position, takes it to its logical conclusion, and rubs their faces in it. It's funny, to be sure, but in the squirmiest possible way.

    "Rape with benefits." That's the name of my autobiography.

    I love this. Who said rape and abortion can't be funny? …wow, did I just say that?

    See? Carlin WAS right – rape CAN be funny!
