    Given that the GOP doesn't want to talk about the "Republican" angle of this scandal with an election coming up, I predict they're going to start hitting the "gay" angle.

    Never mind, of course, that there are plenty of straight predators trying to solicit sex from children. And that the ultimate issue here isn't about sexual orientation -- but power and control. This is about controlling another human being.

    Despite that, I have a hunch Limbaugh/Hannity/O'Reilly are going to start pushing the "Should gays really be around young children?" narratives.

    Then we can get back to the "debate" about gay scoutmasters and everything else. Anything to detract from the real issue.

    These sick bastards will do anything to stay in power. Absolutely, positively anything.

      and I can say for myself that I will take gays around my kids anyday but not hate-spewing drug addicts and shitheads like Hannity!

      Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government.

      In a twisted way, I think Karl Rove is delighting over this scandal. Until last Friday, the public was tiring of gay-bashing; it was so 2004. But now with this Foley shit storm, the Repubs have been able to resurrect gay bashing with a more potent and emotion message: gay rights = gay sexual predation of your children. We Dems are thinking that Foleygate may help us at the polls; now I'm wondering if its going to help keep Repub control of Congress. The MSM is certainly going to sit back and passively pass on the new gay terror meme.

      I'm kinda curious how Mary Cheney feels about all this. Anyone heard from her recently?
