There are sooo many things I could say about the Mark Foley matter. Here are just a few things:
-- OK, so he's checking into rehab. Good for him. However, even if he is an alcoholic, would that have ANYTHING to do with him sending inappropriate, sexual messages to underage boys? No, it would not.
-- If—and this is a huge if—the Republican leadership knew Foley was maybe doing stuff like this ... how could they look the other way. Aren't they the family values party? Allegedly?
-- I know there are exceptions (i.e., that idiot former New Jersey governor), but why does it seem like most of the politicians who get outed, usually in the process of doing something embarrassing, are Republicans? I don't mean this question in a snarky way; I mean it seriously.
Just some thoughts ...
