    Doesn't that mean the Prez vs. Pope vs. Cruise?

    The president is Lucy, and he's holding a football. We're Charlie Brown. - Bob Herbert

    •  How Will Foley's Excuses Help Rethug Leaders... (6+ / 0-)

      who failed to do anything about this when they learned of it?

      We may assume that Hastert sweeping this under the rug had nothing to do with Foley's story. There is no way it could change what Hastert should have done about it, either.

      Foley will soon be the backstory. dKos has already switched focus to the Rethug leadership, others will as well.

      This is CLASS WAR, and the other side is winning.

      •  lets them distract (6+ / 0-)

        by whipping up another frenzy about gays

      •  It has nothing to do with them (8+ / 0-)

        This is Cover Yer Ass territory now.  Foley is out of Congress, all he is trying to do now is stay out of jail.  He doesn't give a damn what happens to Denny Hastert or the rest, he is in hardcore damage control mode.

        The rest of the crew is playing the same game in their own ways.  I would expect even more backstabbing and grandstanding in the next few days, though Denny will take most of the (well deserved) barbs.  

        This is a dirty bomb going off in their private club, everyone is running for the doors to avoid further contamination.  It's going to get really deliciously ugly soon.

        •  And I just don't fucking believe it (10+ / 0-)

          Oh don't get me wrong, I beleive that he's gay.  tht was about as much of a bombshell as the fact that I'm gay.  What I don't believe is that 1. he was molested by a clergayman or by anyone else. and 2. he NEVER had sexual contact with a minor.

          While the first may be difficult to prove until he gets out, the second will be disproven, I will bet, within one week.

          And so help me, if some gay group in FL starts up with the "Poor Mark, we need to support him" crap, I'm on the first plane down, pumps in hand, ready to bitch slap each and every member..  

          This is nothing more than an afternoon special defense, by way of Jim McGreevy.  And don't think that the next thing that the wingnuts will say won't be, "Well the gays supported McGreevy, why won't they support Foley?"  Well first of all, not all of us ran to Jim's side when we found out that he hired his secret lover as NJ's fucking HOMELAND SECURITY DIRECTOR.  And second of all, well, Fuck this phoney ass Foley and the fact that he's now going to try to hide behind us..  fuck him, he's a perv, he's a COG, he's a fucking lying sack of shit.

          so there.

      •  This whole coverup reeks of one foul slimeball... (0+ / 0-)

        ... Karl Rove. Only he's capable of trying to divert from the most prurient, perverted Washington sex-scandal in a quarter-of-a-century by relying on the most outrageous hypocrisy ever spewed!

        -- Hastert was afraid of gay-bashing -- This is Classic Rove. Take a wedge issue, twist-it-shape it-anyway-you-want-it, and then ram it down the American people's throat.

        -- Shimkus, after discovering Foley's salacious predilictions, invites Foley to be guest speaker at annual page party, and allows underage pages to "bid" on a dinner with him. Vintage Rove, turn a blind eye as long as the sleazeball can garner 60-70% of the vote every 2-years.

        -- Boehner first implicates Hastert then retracts then implicates Hastert once again. If there's one thing Karl Rove's students know from their days at "Political Prick U. it's good ol' Lesson #1: How to deny, divert and denigrate to win both friends & favor.

        -- Reynolds is a Boehner Clone Who also knew all about the dirty little secret but since he's charged with holding GOP House seats , he's equally well-versed in Lesson #1, but with a kick. (collecting hush money from Foley)

        -- Bush would defend Satan himself if it diverted attention from Woodward's book, Powell's upcoming book, and the leaked NIE. (notice he chose to speak about it whilst in a crowd of children.  

        Bush isn't inept... he's delusional!
