Even Worse Badness

3 comments September 29th, 2006at 09:55pm Posted by Eli

Mark Foley (R-NAMBLA) being a gross old horndog with underage boys on the internets? Just a bad apple.

Republican leadership knowing about it for a year and not doing anything about it? Time for a new barrel.

This is, of course, assuming that the media reports on that aspect of it (we all remember how excited they were about the pedophiles in the DHS, right?), and the Democrats find a way to run with (and on) it. When combined with the Abramoff/Mehlman story which also came out today (and, y’know, that whole “Torture Good, Habeas Corpus Bad” thing), it drives home the message that the Republican party is corrupt and amoral to the core. Hopefully America is finally ready to listen.

    If it gets reported as a failure (and that’s putting it generously) of the Republican leadership, it’ll stick.

    If it gets reported as one bad apple, it’ll blow over as just another lurid but isolated incident.

    Betcha can’t guess which one my money’s on…
