Note on Foley

Somehow there's some people apparently who haven't heard of what's going on here. A quick summary: a Florida Republican Congressman, Mark Foley, got busted for sending sexual IMs to a 16 year old male Page. Apparently this is against the law. And that's just the beginning: there's at least 52 such conversations and other Pages that are coming forward as having suffered under his carnal gaze.

Our pedophilic representative then resigned instantly when he was notified that news organizations had obtained records of his conversations, though it was only when his shenanigans were uncovered that he suddenly discovered the moral fortitude to bear the responsibility. Which he isn't, really, since he's claiming it's all the fault of alcohol.

Alcohol: it can do anything! One day you're doing great, then you have a few sips and before you know it you're hollering about Jews running the world or suddenly developing a taste for younger flesh.

Now there's a firestorm as the media drumbeat and the Democrats, eager to avoid national security issues on which they're weak, try to paint the rest of the Republicans as somehow being involved in covering it up -- which is false, of course -- and Republicans are running for their lives as an every man for himself free-for-all threatens to put the final nail in the coffin of the GOP's electoral prospects.
