    ... and got slammed as a troll when they posted their diary entry about this on Sept. 24th.

    If by ""the entire story" you mean the fact that Foley has been chicken-hawking pages, it seems that that knowledge has been around for a long time.  I don't think WHInternNow is generating it.  He or she is just one of the few people who had the courage to say something about it publicly before ABC blazed a trail.

      WHInternNow, came forward in his/her diary and on the open thread is the point of this diary.

      WHInternNow was clearly trying to get this story out, and posted the link to the Foley Emails a week ago. He also posted back on 9/5/06 (see links in diary).

        That's why I'm glad you posted this. It could be a lesson to us all.

        If people here had followed up on what WHInternNow posted on the 24th, instead of dismissing him or her as a crank, the Foley story might have broken a week earlier - like maybe before we lost habeas corpus.

      I mean the timing and circumstances of the news story.

        the more skeptical i become. there is something very strange about this indeed. i just hope we are not being set up again.

        This is the BEST DIARY EVER!

          Unless you are another pants-wetting "I'm so scared of an October surprise" type. Foley RESIGNED. Republicans do not resign because of rumours and/or unsubstantiated accusations. They stand their ground and accuse whoever's attacking them of partisanship. They do it even if the accusations ARE well-founded if they think they can get away with it.

          Meanwhile, House GOP leadership is tripping on its own feet trying to find a credible storyline. If this were a "set-up" wouldn't they have their lines prepared?

          Anyway, i think sacrificing a congressional seat is a little far to go just to "set up" democrats.
