10/02/2006: President Bush should be pounding the bully pulpit on this matter now known as FoleyGate. His party has become the Party of Pederasty and he obviously gives not a damn. This further supports my long-held contention that he is not a real conservative. Instead, Tony Snow–who is normally on the ball–was very slow off the blocks on this one.
House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) is also a day late and a dollar short. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) is mum. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is mum. Florida governor Jeb Bush is also mum. John McCain (R-AZ) is mum. GOP chairman Ken Mehlman is mum.
Republican leaders either don’t get it or don’t care: this is about the quality of American leadership. What will be the Republican slogans?
“Sure, we coddle pedophiles, but we are better for national security!”
“Sure, we coddle pedophiles, but we are pro-life!”
“Sure, we coddle pedophiles, but we oppose flag burning!”
“Sure, we coddle pedophiles, but our opponents will raise your taxes!”
“Sure, we coddle pedophiles, but at least we support family values!”
This is not to say that the Democrats have any moral high ground, as Mel Reynolds (D-IL) and Gerry Studds (D-MA) prove that pedophilia is a bipartisan endeavor. That both parties have a history of coddling child molesters puts our political class in the same league as Caligula and the Romans of old.
As for which party to support, right now none of the above is looking quite good. Anyone who thinks the GOP or DNC is in position to promote sound family values is smoking something I would legalize if I were President. Both parties are profoundly bankrupt, and we are holding the bag.
I do know this much: the GOP deserves to lose. They have not made the case for their leadership, and have shown themselves for who they are: a corrupt, despicable group of scumbags who court religious conservatives while coddling child molesters.
Piss on them and the horse in on which they rode.
