It's nice Foley is revealing he was molested by a clergyman as a teenager and all, but I think it would have had more impact had he done so before the scandal erupted. Now it just looks like groveling.
I hope Democrats don't get too self-righteous about the scandal. It sucks that this is the thing that's dragging the GOP down, instead of more substantive issues like the bungled war in Iraq or the damage done to our democratic institutions and principles.
Homosexuality is not equivalent to pedophilia. I've read some of my socially conservative brethren already making that connection, and, well, it's not true. So just get used to it.
How would the news coverage and the outpouring of scorn be different if the pages were girls?
