    I think Foley can be that last nudge that helps them overcome their cognitive dissonance at having supported this administration for so long. I believe there are many decent but unenlightened Republican voters out there who are uncomfortable with each new revelation of this administration's stunning incompetence, but have until now found a way to excuse those episodes. The Foley scandal, so blatantly icky and so easy to understand, may give voters that final "out" they need in order to mentally divorce themselves once and for all from this whole gang of crooks, liars, and bumbling misfits.
